American Self-Help Group Clearinghouse

Cedar Knolls, NJ
Phone: 1-973-326-6789 (national) or 1-800-367-6274 (NJ)
E-Mail: ashc@bc.cybernex.net

       "Searchable database of over 1,000 national, international, model, and online self-help support groups for any specific illness, disability, addiction, bereavement situation, parenting, caregiver concern, abuse, or other stressful life situation.  Suggestions for starting groups."
       The American Self-Help Clearinghouse provides extensive info and listings for a wide range of issues.
      This NJ-based clearinghouse offers manuals and guides, most of which are not free. There is also a group directory, which you must pay for as well. The list of mental health resources gives you an actual list of places, but no other information about them, such as e-mail addresses or websites. This really could be improved. - TAL

       "The National Self-Help Clearinghouse is a not-for-profit organization that was founded in 1976 to facilitate access to self-help groups and increase the awareness of the importance of mutual support. The clearinghouse provides a number of services."
       The National Self-Help Clearinghouse contains extensive information on issues concerning self-help.
       I disagree. I think this site offers very little information, and the sites that it links to are much more helpful than the actual clearinghouse. - TAL
