What is Grow?
Grow holds weekly meetings of small groups for people who have experienced depression, anxiety and other mental or emotional distress, who come together to help each other deal with the challenges of life. It can be extraordinarily liberating and affirming to share problems with others who are encouraging and accepting, and facing similar issues!
Developing understanding, acceptance, confidence, control and love is at the heart of the Grow program. Meetings are supportive, non-threatening, positive and constructive and you don’t require a doctor’s referral to attend. Members are known in their group on a first name basis only and make a commitment to confidentiality. No fees are charged, however a small donation to meet necessary expenses is usual, though strictly voluntary.
Grow meetings are run by the members themselves, according to a well-structured format. During the meeting, members can share their problems, learn how to re-build their lives and report on their own progress.
