This collection compiles the "grey literature" of self-help health care, tracking the explosion of self-help groups in the United Kingdom through the 1980s. These groups have published extensive information as a public service, and this collection gathers their output into an easily accessible resource. Among the 21 organizations represented in the collection are the British Heart Foundation, the Health Education Authority, the Twins and Multiple Births Association, Action Against Allergy and the British Pregnancy Advisory Service. Materials in the collection include public information leaflets, self-help booklets, journals and posters. A printed guide accompanies the collection.
