Where to Start for Community Mental Health
Except for worldwide self-help networks like Alcoholics Anonymous, the availablility of local self-help groups is always changing, depending primarily on utilization and leadership. Begin with an internet search of the national association (or local provider) most closely related to your area of interest/need, e.g., Autism Society of America, Anxiety Disorders Association of America, NAMI, Suicide Prevention Services, Hospice, Senior Services Associates.
