How Well Does Peer Support and Self-help Work?

Evaluation of four mental health Consumer/Survivor Initiatives (CSIs) (Nelson et al., 2006)

CSIs are operated exclusively by and for people who have experienced mental health issues; members participate in internal activities, one-to-one peer support, drop-ins, self-help groups, and external activities
