What do People Say About Grow?

In the depression, anxiety and the accompanying low self-esteem, I had a tendency to avoid contact and stay isolated, which only intensified the condition. Grow is an invaluable source of support, helping me to get outside of myself, to grow in self-acceptance and confidence and in active concern for others.

David Construction Inspector

I was dependent on medication – I thought I had no other choice but to live in a stupor. Grow’s caring and its advice on how to deal with hallucinations helped me. Under the care of a new doctor, I had reduced the medication to about 25% of the old dosage. Life is now exciting and worthwhile.

Mariellen GROW organiser

“What made me return to Grow for a second week was knowing that I’d found a haven where I could be with people who understood me and didn’t criticize me or judge me. I felt safe.”


I was depressed and despairingly alone and had developed the habit of talking to myself. But when I discovered a Grow Group I found that they not only listened but also seemed to understand where I was at – they were accepting of me. I began to feel all was not lost.
