Get Growing is an evidence-based, peer to peer mental wellbeing Program developed by Grow Australia for young people aged 11 to 17 years.
The Get Growing Program has its foundations deeply rooted in the original Grow Program of Recovery and Personal Development, developed by people with a lived experience of mental illness. Get Growing is a peer to peer support Program through which participants explore topics, share problems, learn objective thinking skills and apply practical tools for problem solving. The Program draws on many principles for mental, social, physical and overall wellbeing.
The GET GROWING program has been running successfully since 2014 in SA, NSW, NT, WA, and QLD. We have delivered to over 90 school groups, embracing 1200+ young people and are now thrilled to be trialling GET GROWING in Victoria.
