For example, the SelfHelp Group Sourcebook alone lists over 1,000 national and international headquarters of self-help groups in the United States and Canada (White & Madara, 2002) and includes 33 separate clearinghouses for self-help information in 22 different countries.

Members of self-help groups are sometimes wary of professional involvement because they fear it will compromise the autonomy and confidentiality of the group.
