GROW provides free community support groups, face-to-face and online, for mental health, self-development and friendship.
Our groups support individuals with a range of issues including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, suicidal thoughts, PTSD, addictive behaviours and psychosis.
GROW runs groups based on a 12 step programme specifically for mental wellness.
GROW’s own members run the groups, which are overseen by seasoned trained leaders. Each group’s membership varies in size from 5 to 9 people. Face-to-face meetings are held weekly, last two hours, and are followed by refreshments.
They combine personal testimonies, reports on progress, group work on members’ problems and adult education about rebuilding lives. Between meetings members keep in touch through friendly phone calls, a variety of organised socials and regular training days.
Group membership is anonymous, non-denominational and open to all.
GROW also provides online groups. To register for an online group, please contact email@example.com or call 027 614 2561.
No fees apply.
