About Us

Grow is a community-based organisation that has helped thousands of Australians recover from mental illness through a unique program of mutual support and personal development.  Grow was established in Sydney in 1957. The founders were drawn together by their first-hand experience of mental illness.

The wisdom they gained in helping each other to overcome life’s challenges and recover from mental illness was carefully recorded and forms the basis of the unique Grow Program.

Grow Groups meet weekly and vary in size from 3-10 members, and are run by seasoned ‘Growers’ who have taken a voluntary leadership role within the Group.

Over the course of each meeting, the group engages in a series of group discussions, interactions, and readings that follow a structure and timetable to ensure everyone has an opportunity to participate, and meetings finish on time.

What makes Grow so special is the practical advice and the wisdoms that are discussed every week from a range of literature, some of which has been written by the founders of Grow. This literature has proven to be of enormous benefit, and can assist with keeping ‘Growers’ on track with their road to recovery.

There are also opportunities to develop new friends and interests and support each other in practical ways.

It is free to participate in Grow programs.  There are no assessments, no need for a diagnosis and no strict eligibility criteria.

Peer Support Groups for improving and maintaining mental well being, meeting weekly on Tuesdays at 10:30am and 7:00pm and Wednesdays at 7:00pm. No fee
