How Well Does Peer Support and Self-help Work?

Study of three Parent Mutual Aid Organizations (PMAOs) in southwest Ontario for families involved with child protection agencies (Cameron, 1995)

Those in the PMAOs were involved in activities designed to promote social integration, emotional support, education, and concrete support

Compared with those who received only child protection services, those who were also involved in the PMAOs had lower rates of their children being placed in care (14% vs 29%), were more involved in the community, reported more social support and improved self-esteem and less stress
