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. 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.
