Abstract

During the past 15 years, there has been tremendous growth in the number of self help groups and agencies for mental health clients. This article examines the self-help perspective in relation to problems withtraditional mental health services and the need for client-run services. Self-help agencies see their goal as empowerment on an individual,organizational, and societal level. They strive to accomplish this byhelping members obtain needed resources and develop coping skills; providing means of enhancing members' self-concept and lessening the stigma of perceived mental disability, giving members control in the agencies' governance, administration, and service delivery, and furtheringmember involvement in social policy-making. The goal of this article is not to endorse the self-help perspective but to use it as the basisfor raising research questions that will further the mental health practitioner's understanding of this service modality.
