More than 5.4 million Syrian refugees are registered in countries surrounding Syria, including an estimated 1.5m in Lebanon.1 Psychological and social distress among refugees is common, resulting in a wide range of emotional, cognitive, physical and behavioural problems.2 High-quality research on the mental health needs of Syrian refugees should play an important role in planning and providing services, yet conducting mental health research to a high standard in a refugee setting is particularly challenging.
