TL;DR: Self-esteem and two aspects of stigma, namely, perceptions of devaluation-discrimination and social withdrawal because of perceived rejection, were assessed among 70 members of a clubhouse program for people with mental illness at baseline and at follow-up six and 24 months later.
Abstract: OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to determine whether stigma affects the self-esteem of persons who have serious mental illnesses or whether stigma has few, if any, effects on self-esteem. METHODS: Self-esteem and two aspects of stigma, namely, perceptions of devaluation-discrimination and social withdrawal because of perceived rejection, were assessed among 70 members of a clubhouse program for people with mental illness at baseline and at follow-up six and 24 months later. RESULTS: The two measures of perceptions of stigma strongly predicted self-esteem at follow-up when baseline self-esteem, depressive symptoms, demographic characteristics, and diagnosis were controlled for. Participants whose scores on the measures of stigma were at the 90th percentile were seven to nine times as likely as those with scores at the 10th percentile to have low self-esteem at follow-up.

TL;DR: A meta-analysis that examined the effects of antistigma approaches that included protest or social activism, education of the public, and contact with persons with mental illness found both education and contact had positive effects on reducing stigma for adults and adolescents with a mental illness.
Abstract: Stigma associated with mental illness has malignant effects on the lives of people with serious mental illnesses. Many strategies have been used to combat public stigma—the prejudice and discrimination endorsed by the general population. To identify the most effective approaches, researchers conducted a meta-analysis of data from 72 outcome studies in 14 countries. Overall, strategies that include education about mental illness and contact with people who have mental illness are effective. For adults, contact appears to be more effective, whereas education seems to work best among adolescents.
