This study is one of a series on self-help groups supported in part by a grant, MH 24961, from the National Institute of Mental Health. The author wishes to acknowledge the particularly valuable assistance of Richard Wollert in both the organizational phases of the survey and in its data analyses. Helpful comments were received on an earlier draft of the paper from Robert Durham, Kenneth Heller, Robert Schwartz, and Sandra M. Levy.
