Target demographics: All are welcome to come to GROW. Most members are between the ages of 21 and 65. There are special groups in development for young adults in some areas. Also groups for military veterans, spanish speaking population and others are operating in some locations. Please call us for more information

Geographic areas served: We are eager to expand GROW beyond Illinois, New Jersey and Alaska. Consequently, we welcome your inquiries about bringing GROW to your area or state. Our goal is to develop GROW as a package that includes a network of groups. However, we usually need to begin conservatively, with one or two GROW groups and some local leadership training. Please contact us to discuss development possibilities in your state.

GROW's mission is to promote mental health recovery, personal growth and prevention within our weekly mutual help support groups and throughout our supportive community. As members we strive first to take personal responsibility for changing ourselves, and ultimately as leaders we become “gentle builders of a free and whole community” by contributing to the recovery of others.
