In this week's issue -- the first after our holiday weekend break and one chock full of job postings! -- we have a feature article by Irene Boldt, "Exploring the Utility of Self-Help Groups: Does Self-Help Group Membership Enhance Mental Health?" In her introduction she writes that her article's purpose is to "demonstrate to healthcare professionals (HCP) that self-help groups have the potential to positively influence the mental health of their members."

We welcome your feedback on our feature articles-including topics you'd like to see--news about old colleagues and new colleagues, and comments on our newsletter and searchable database of health promotion information. Read our complete submission guidelines at and write to
