The review summarises the literature on the mental health (psychological skills) of Para athletes. There have been various studies done on the hindrances that occur due to the athlete’s physical disability for Para athletes but there has been very limited research done on how the psychological skills affect their performance and what can be done to improve them. This article would help in exploring paucity in this area of research and take in suggested directions for future research. A systematic search of Research gate, PubMed, Journal of Exercise Rehabilitation, was done using the search terms such as mental health of Paralympics, Psychological skills, Sports performance enhancement, Para-athletes. A total of 162 articles seemed to be relevant at the initial screening out of which 45 articles addressed the Paralympics and psychology specifically published from 2004 to 2020. Most of the studies reviewed were done on a small scale mostly using tools that were either not standardised or only consisting of few parameters such as 4 to 5. There is a need for inquiry and further research in finding the psychological skills needed for enhancement in sports performance, how to coach these athletes so they can imply it in their daily practice and routine and psychological health of Para-athletes.

Keywords : Mental Health of Para-Athletes, Psychological Skills, Para-Athletes, Sports Performance Enhancement.
