  1. Problems in assessing prevalence and membership characteristics of self-help group participants.

    Article - En anglais

    Relying on secondary analysis of three surveys, this study examines the prevalence of self-help groups (SHG) use.

    Two of these surveys are based on large household probability samples (Epidemiological Catchment Area and llinger-Balter surveys) and the third on the population of self-help groups in California.

    Based on the best available survey information, an estimated 7.5 million adults participated in a SHG during 1992.

    Self-help groups use for mental health problems appears to be a predominantly White, middle-class phenomenon.
