What we cover

The Cochrane Common Mental Disorders Review Group assists in the production and maintenance of Cochrane systematic reviews that assess the effects (including harm) of treatments in the prevention and management of a range of common mental disorders. We also engage in knowledge translation activities to support the use of our evidence in decision making.

We mainly undertake intervention reviews, and we also produce reviews using multiple treatment meta-analysis.  We look at interventions that prevent, manage and treat common mental disorders. 

Our reviews cover a range of conditions including depression, anxiety, eating disorders and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). See our glossary of conditions for more details.

Cochrane has also recently created eight new Networks of Cochrane Review Groups (CRGs). The formation of these networks provides a good opportunity to review the scope of all CRGs and to consider changes where appropriate.

Find out more about our systematic reviews here. All our reviews are published on the Cochrane Library which you can also browse by Cochrane Review Group here.
