GROW offers 12-step support groups to anyone who needs help to overcome mental, emotional or social problems. Membership is free and any one can observe a group meeting before deciding to join. You automatically become a member by attending meetings regularly. The meeting has a formal agenda and are run by many leaders who have experienced a mental condition in the past. With training, application of the program and help from friends in the group, not only have they learned to overcome their own problems but they can now be confident in helping others far beyond their own condition or afflictions. They do so charitably, serving the groups within their local community.
