About GROW

GROW is a community-based organisation that has helped thousands of Australians with their recovery from mental ill-health through a unique program of mutual support and personal development.

Established in Sydney in 1957, the founders were drawn together by their first-hand experience of mental ill-health. The wisdom they gained in helping each other overcome life’s challenges and move toward recovery was carefully recorded and this forms the basis of our GROW programs.
