Aims: People with mental health problems often experience self-stigma, whereby they internalise stereotypic or stigmatising views of others. Self-stigma is known to have negative effects on self-esteem and self-efficacy and a continuing impact on psychological wellbeing. However, we have only seen limited self-help interventions designed to reduce self-stigma. This review aimed to provide a critical review and give an overview of the literature in this area. Method: A systematic review of five electronic databases (PsycINFO, MEDLINE, CINAHL Plus, Scopus and EMBASE) was carried out to identify articles on selfhelp interventions for self-stigma related to mental health problems, published between January 2007 and July 2017. Results: Seven articles were identified and evaluated using a combination of quality appraisal and narrative synthesis.
