GROW is a Mental Health Organisation which helps people who have suffered, or are suffering, from mental health problems. Members are helped to recover from all forms of mental breakdown, or indeed, to prevent such happening. GROW, founded in Australia in 1957 by former mental sufferers, has a national network of over 130 Groups in Ireland. Its principal strength is the support members give each other from their own experience in matters to do with mental health. GROW is grant aided by all of the Health Boards and by the Department of Health and Children.
The 12 Steps to Recovery
We admitted we were inadequate or maladjusted to life.
We firmly resolved to get well and co-operated with the help that we needed.
We surrendered to the healing power of a wise and loving God.
We made personal inventory and accepted ourselves.
We made moral inventory and cleaned out our hearts.
We endured until cured.
We took care and control of our bodies.
We learned to think by reason rather than by feelings and imagination.
We trained our wills to govern our feelings.
We took our responsible and caring place in society.
We grew daily closer to maturity.
We carried GROW’s hopeful healing and transforming message to others in similar need.
Any non-religious/theist specific groups out there?
