Young Adults Peer-Support Group - Carlton Night

Grow is a caring and supportive community-based organisation that has developed a program for improving and maintaining mental wellness

About this Event

Are you looking for extra support?

Meet new friends, increase your support network, share or listen to other people’s experiences and learn off each other by joining this free weekly peer-support group.

Grow provides peer-support in a friendly and supportive environment for people experiencing emotional or mental health issues. 

Grow meetings are run by the members themselves, according to a well-structured format. During the meeting, members can share their problems, learn how to re-build their lives and report on their own progress. Grow’s program of personal growth is based on changing negative thinking and behaviour. It offers strategies on how to:

  • Deal with an emotional crisis,

  • Manage feelings, 

  • Think by reason, 

  • Realize personal worth, and 

  • Improve relationships.

Developing understanding, acceptance and confidence is at the heart of the Grow program. Many people have been able to rebuild lives with the help of Grow. Meetings are supportive, non-threatening, positive and constructive. Members are known in their group on a first name basis only and make a commitment to confidentiality. No fees are charged, however a small donation to meet necessary expenses is usual, though strictly voluntary. A variety of training and social activities backs up the essential group process so you are welcome to our weekly socials (e.g. dinners, coffees, games nights, mini golf etc.)

Young Adult Grow Groups are:


  • 2 hr weekly meetings​.

  • 18 - 35 yrs of age.

  • No referrals, diagnosis or registrations needed. ​

  • 3- 15 members per group.

A proven program for mental wellbeing.
