Description:
GROW was founded in Australia in 1957 by a group of former patients of mental institutions. It is now established in six countries. It is Ireland's largest self-help movement in the field of mental health with a network of 109 groups allover Ireland. Its principal aim is to help members recover from all forms of mental breakdown, or to prevent such happening. GROW through its 12 Step programme, helps to rehabilitate former patients of psychiatric hospitals; it educates groups ranging from second level students to trainee GPs about mental illness treatment challenges and successes, and it offers effective programmes for personal development and adult education for living. The support GROW gives to people in distress enables them to perform better at work and to cope better with life in general. It also helps them to overcome the stigma that accompanies mental illness. It is strictly confidential and non-denominational, and it offers members complete anonymity. It is open to all and no fees or dues are charged. While many people are referred by GPs or mental health professionals, a doctor's referral is not necessary. GROW's principal strength is the support members give to each other from their own experiences in matters relating to mental health. It provides members with a 'Program of Recovery and Growth' and an uniquely structured 'Group Method'. This method is an effective and research-vouched programme for the mentally ill, those suffering from breakdowns and those who are suffering from stress and nervous conditions.
