the design and implementation of effective MHPSS programs. Therefore,
research in all its forms is key to informed MHPSS emergency responses.
This document provides an overview of principles, practices and
examples to support researchers, practitioners, managers, emergency
officers and communities to implement MHPSS research in emergency
settings that is ethical.
