“Do you ever find yourself facing a new situation where you’re stressed, unsure what to do, or feel it’s really affecting your mental well-being? Well, you’re not alone. GROW’s fantastic community is here to help you cope, recover and increase your mental resilience.”

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.
