Self-Help Group Sourcebook OnLine
Sponsored By CenterSite, LLC


The Self-Help Sourcebook Online is a searchable database that includes information on over 1,100+ national, international and demonstrational model self-help support groups, ideas for starting groups, and opportunities to link with others to develop needed new national or international groups.

This database uses information provided by the American Self-Help Clearinghouse, a department of the Behavioral Health Center of Saint Clare's Health Services in Denville, NJ, which published The Self-Help Sourcebook, 7th Edition in Fall, 2002.

For possible updates on any of the groups in this online database, you can reach the American Clearinghouse by phone weekdays at 973-326-6789. They also run the New Jersey Self-Help Clearinghouse.

The work of the American Self-Help Clearinghouse is made possible by private financial and informational contributions, along with corporate support, as CenterSite, LLC has provided here. Please contact the Clearinghouse if you'd like to make a donation to help them continue this free online service.


"By retrieving and/or utilizing information from the American Self-Help Clearinghouse database, you agree to hold harmless the American Self-Help Clearinghouse, its owners and employees from any and all liability arising directly or indirectly from your use of information contained in the database. You be the judge. The Self-Help Clearinghouse does not evaluate or rate the individual self-help groups which are contained in the database. Therefore, the Self-Help Clearinghouse\'s listing of a self-help group does not constitute an endorsement of that group. Neither does omission signify disapproval. We include groups in the database based upon their report of their organizations being focused upon no-fee mutual aid, i.e., members helping one another. The use of any information is entirely the responsibility of the reader. You are the ultimate judge in deciding whether the group is appropriate to your needs. You can send for and review literature, and/or speak with the phone contact person. Self-help means more control, and more responsibility, in your hands."
