Objective: This annotated bibliography provides an overview of sentinel and influential literature about human trafficking for general mental health practitioners. Methods: A modified participatory ranking methodology was used to create the list of articles. Results: We identified 25 articles relevant to trafficking and mental health which covered the topics of epidemiology, treatment, identification, policy, and research methodology. Conclusions: The articles presented cover a broad range of trafficking types and topics. However, there is a dearth of literature about labor trafficking and the trafficking of men, boys, transgender, and nonbinary people.
