The impact of mental health and psychosocial support programs for populations affected by humanitarian emergencies: A systematic review protocol

This protocol details the methodology for an evidence synthesis on mental health and psychosocial support in humanitarian crises. The evidence synthesis asks “What are the effects of mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS) interventions delivered to populations affected by humanitarian emergencies? What are the barriers and facilitators of implementing and receiving these MHPSS interventions?”

Please check back in the summer and fall of 2016 for results of the full review of the evidence.

This protocol is part of the Humanitarian Evidence Program, a DFID-funded partnership between Oxfam and the Feinstein International Center.
