Who we are:

We are a community of people drawn together by our first-hand experiences of mental health problems. Having found practical ways of helping each other recover from mental health challenges we developed what we refer to as The Grow Program. We meet weekly in locations all over Ireland and use our proven 12 Step Program to recover from various forms of mental health problems.

Our Mission:

To create new hope, sense of identity, meaning and valued connections by empowering people to nurture their own positive mental health and well-being, by supporting personal growth and establishing a path to recovery with education, self-teaching and peer support.
