    The experts on self-help maintain that this is not meant to replace the standard treatments with office visits. However, I often provide info about this, partly because some people who should seek help refuse to, and self-help is better than no help.

    I have info about self-help and standard treatments in my answers.

    Handbook of Self-Help Therapies, which reviews studies of books and programs, says that the great majority of self-help books are useless or worse than useless.

    Authoritative Guide to Self-Help Resources rates resources based on polls of more than 3,000 mental health professionals.

    This answer tells you about a variety of things including evidence-based CBT self-help, under DEPRESSION TREATMENTS.

    There are workbooks, but going through them is a chore that defeats most people. However, they're still useful. The thing is, things like OCD can be treated, but not cured.
