This protocol outlines plans for conducting a mixed-methods systematic review on the impact of mental health and psychosocial support programmes in humanitarian emergencies. It outlines the reasons for the review questions, how the review will be conducted, plans for critical appraisal of included studies and methods of synthesis. This review will identify studies by conducting a bibliographic search of 12 databases and will also draw on the grey literature by hand searching of more than 25 topic-specific websites, as well as contacting experts in the field. This review is commissioned under the Humanitarian Evidence Programme, a UK Aid-funded partnership between Oxfam and the Feinstein International Center that aims to improve humanitarian policy and practice.
