GROW offers a supportive environment to help those who struggle to live well in the world. We are a community mental health movement with groups suitable for people recovering from mental illness, anyone suffering a crisis, and for those who need support to self-manage their daily lives. We offer friendship and support at weekly group meetings that are open to all. The meetings follow a routine format and embrace a 12-step program.
The GROW community are people who have been in your shoes and know how you feel. We have found our way back to wholeness and our passion is to help you do the same. No referrals are required, no fees are charged, however a small donation to meet group expenses is usual and voluntary.
