Event Summary

GROW Support Group - New Group Starting Monday 9th September 2019 in Cobh at 7.30pm ,
All Welcome, Contact Treasa 0879051275

Members attend a weekly meeting lasting about two hours during which a specific Group Method is followed which enables them to learn a practical psychology of mental health, known as the GROW Program. Members provide mutual support in undertaking certain tasks that encourage a healthy change in thinking, behaviour and/or relationships.

GROW Group meetings are chaired by ordinary members but each Group has an Organiser and a Recorder, or less often, a Sponsor (e.g. a nurse using GROW to support a group of Day-care clients) whose primary role is to ensure that the meeting is run appropriately. Each Group is supported by an Area Co-ordinator, many of whom have experienced GROW first hand. The Area Co-ordinator monitors the group’s authenticity in using the GROW Program.

GROW provides access to leadership development for its members to ensure that its Groups are both friendly and safe. All leadership is drawn from GROW’s 12 Step Program of mental health, which has been tried and tested over almost fifty years.
