Support Groups Newsgroup Pointer

Associate Editor: Ross Powell 

This Pointer will help you find the information you need and get your
questions answered much quicker than if you were to simply crosspost to
every psychology or support newsgroup in existence. It is provided as
a public service. Post your article in the most appropriate newsgroup
according to its topic. It is organized according to hierarchies, in
alaphabetical order.

  * Not all sites carry all the below listed alt.* newsgroups.
  * If your site does not carry a particular alt newsgroup, please
  * contact your own News administrator and request that they
  * begin carrying that specific group.

  * Because of software posting limitations, this article may
  * appear more than once. My apologies for this inconvenience.

  personalized index for mental health, psychology and
  support resources on the Internet. (Including this one!)
