Background: Although many people report benign, psychotic-like or unusual experiences (UEs) which do not cause distress, rates of reported suicidal ideation and suicide attempts are elevated across the psychosis continuum. Recent research investigating potential risk factors for self-injurious thoughts and behaviours (SITBs) has focussed on the individual contribution of UEs. Whilst there is substantial evidence linking UEs to SITBs, there are inconsistent findings regarding the direction of associations and the role of other factors such as co-occurring mental health difficulties in clinic-based populations. Method: Searches were conducted across three electronic databases: Embase, PsycINFO and PubMed. The reference lists of included studies were also screened for any additional papers. Best practice guidelines for conducting systematic reviews were adhered to and a quality assessment was performed. No studies were removed on the grounds of quality, but this was noted where study findings were integrated and described.
