Evidence Webinar: What works in mental health and child protection interventions?

Thursday, October 5, 2017 from 9:30 – 11:00am EDT

Join the Humanitarian Evidence Programme team and systematic review authors Mukdarut Bangpan and Kelly Dickson (EPPI-Centre, UCL – mental health), and Katharine Williamson and Harry Shannon (Save the Children and McMaster University respectively – child protection), to discuss the findings of their reviews and synthesis of the research evidence. Chaired by Nigel Timmins (Director, Global Humanitarian Team, Oxfam), the webinar is an opportunity to unpack and explore the evidence:

  • What examples emerge of good practice and successful interventions?
  • How are child protection and mental health interventions targeted? Who might be falling through the cracks?
  • What do we know about the impact of interventions on men, women, boys, and girls, as well as on outcomes related to physical and mental health?
  • How do these findings resonate in practice?
  • Whose experiences are reflected in the synthesized evidence base?
  • What are the gaps in the evidence base and what can researchers and practitioners do to generate better evidence in the future?

Register here.

You can send us specific questions of your own when you register for the event (see final question on the registration form below) or on the day via the webinar chat function. You can also join the #HumanitarianEvidence conversation on Twitter. The webinar will be recorded and available at a later date, alongside other program outputs (including evidence briefs and guides) here
