Codes and Frequencies
For sample persons age 18 and older who knew what stress was, and who reported to have experienced stress within the last year, EMOHELPOSH reports whether or not the person sought help from a self-help group (other than religious support group, Alcoholics Anonymous, and the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill). Examples of self-help groups include: Recover Inc., Emotions Anonymous, Phobia - Panic Disorder Support Group, Tough Love, Overeaters Anonymous, Parents Without Partners, Bereavement Groups, and Children of Divorce.
EMOHELPOSH is part of a series of variables related to sources of help with adult personal or emotional problems, as well as the amount of help received by each source. For related variables, please use the IPUMS NHIS search function and drop-down menus.
