Benefits of GROW
What are the benefits of joining GROW?
The service GROW provides is one of friendship and mutual help for anyone experiencing a mental, emotional, or any sort of complaint in their life.
The mutual help principle means you can receive help and instruction, and you can also offer comfort and counsel, balanced by compassion and understandings from GROW’s program and guidebook on healthy living.
GROW is volunteer run. We don’t employ counsellors or psychotherapists although we work in collaboration with all medical professions and sometimes receive referrals from them.
Outgrow your mental health disorder
GROW group member’s benefit directly from a 12-step program, which is free and available for all to learn and apply. As a united group of people with a common interest, members work together to find practical ways to rise above mental health disorders such as:
Obsessive compulsive disorder
Post-traumatic stress disorder
A prevention from mental illness and negative feelings
GROW’s method can not only help you mature through mental illness, it can also be the resource engaged to prevent a mental breakdown. In the course of life, many people can expect an emotional after-effect occurring as a result of:
Grief and loss
Lack of confidence
Marriage separation or divorce
GROW provides mutual empathy and support from peers who have experienced similar situations themselves. Negative feelings and emotions can play on our mind and if left unchecked can become too intense or out of control leading to a mental health disorder.
Stop an addiction or habit
As well as the above, your fellow GROW members and your peers will work together with you to combat an addiction or a habit that you want to be free of, such as
No charge – No referral – No appointment
There is no charge and no referral necessary to join GROW’s mental health service. Groups are run by volunteer leaders and social events are organised by its own members. Donations are accepted and GROW’s own mental health books are available for sale.
