Abstract: Self-help group has long been recognized as crucial for psychiatric treatment, rehabilitation and social integration of mental outpatients. Nevertheless, for various reasons, many mental outpatients cannot participate in self-help group. The writers conduct a study in two outpatients clinics in Kowloon area. By means of random sampling, about 400 mental outpatients are surveyed by questionnaires. Their willingness, knowledge and belief in self-help group were studied. Of these respondents, less than 30% were willing to participate in self-help group. In comparing those willing and unwilling to participate, the group willing to participate had better knowledge of trust and experience in self-help group. The implications of the study for social work practice with mental outpatients are also discussed.
