Introducing Grow 

GROW is a community-based organisation that helps Australians with their recovery from mental ill-health through a unique program of mutual support and personal development.
Our peer-to-peer Grow Program is based on a 12-step program of personal growth, mutual help, and support, and draws on many principles for mental, social, and spiritual health. At each meeting, members share about how they came to GROW and how they are exploring self-improvement strategies on their road to recovery. It’s not a straight road, and that’s where the support of other GROW members helps – everyone in the group has opportunities to share their experiences of coping with mental wellness.
Joining a Grow group is free and does not require a referral or a doctor’s diagnosis. Groups are confidential and members can choose to remain anonymous.
Other programs provided by GROW Australia include:
Growing Resilience
Growing Resilience is a one hour per week, 6-week video conference course that help individuals with their personal resilience, and has been designed in response to COVID-19.
Our eGrow Groups run the same as the Grow Program, with participants meeting online using Zoom.
Grow Residential Rehabilitation and Recovery Services (NSW/ACT)
Personalised support through holistic and stepped care approach towards treatment.
Get Growing Schools Program
10 week facilitated peer group program for early intervention and prevention of mental illness delivered in schools.
