Community-based interventions for improving mental health in refugee children and adolescents in high-income countries

The primary objective is to assess the effectiveness and acceptability of community-based interventions (randomised controlled trials only) in comparison with controls (no treatment, waiting list, alternative treatment) for preventing and treating mental health problems (major depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, psychological distress) and improving mental health in refugee children and adolescents in high-income countries.

The secondary objective is to comprehensively summarise evidence from non-randomised quantitative and qualitative studies on community-based interventions for mental health promotion and preventing and treating mental disorders among refugee children and adolescents in high-income countries.

This is a protocol.
