To investigate the state of knowledge on the use of mental health simulation in undergraduate nursing education. Using PRISMA and following systematic search processes and quality appraisal, 15 empirical research articles were extracted and analysed, resulting in two key themes with subthemes. Findings note the importance of realism and debrief in simulation and in improving students’ confidence, and their attitudes and perceptions about people with mental illness, and in bridging the theory-to-practice gap. Simulation is recommended as a key component in undergraduate nursing curricula where advanced therapeutic communication and mental health assessment skills can be taught.
