GROW is a community-based national organisation that has offered peer-to-peer mental health support for more than 60 years.
The GROW Program is based on a 12-step program of personal growth of mutual help and support, but does not have a religious basis. It is all-inclusive and draws on many principles for mental, social and spiritual health. At each meeting, members share about their lived experiences around mental health and how they are exploring self-improvement strategies on their road to recovery.
GROW support groups can be found all across Australia, including at Bateau Bay, Wyong and Woy Woy on the Central Coast. These groups offer hope, friendship and support among fellow members on an ongoing weekly basis. An online support program, eGROW, is also available.
The organisation also offers specialised programs for children, young adults and people seeking residential rehabilitation for combined drug, alcohol and mental health issues at selected locations nationwide.
