About us

Grow commenced in Sydney, in 1957 by people who believed that, together, they could support each other to overcome the difficulties they experienced, in their everyday life, that were caused by mental illness, and go on to lives full of hope and aspiration.

Grow is a consumer based, national organisation, providing peer supported programs for growth and personal development for people with a mental illness and for people experiencing difficulty in coping with life’s challenges.
