GROW – Mental Wellbeing Programs (Darwin) 2024

GROW Australia


About Us

We are a community-based organisation that has helped thousands of Australians with their recovery from mental ill-health through a program of mutual support and personal development.

Cofounded by Catholic priest Father Con Keogh in 1957, GROW continues to provide free, peer-to-peer groups for people looking for support with their mental health and wellbeing.

In 1954, Con suffered a mental breakdown and was hospitalised. He spent about 10 months in hospital and after being discharged, he describes being mortally afraid and suffering from severe memory loss. During his time of recovery, a friend invited Con to attend an Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meeting. Despite not identifying as an alcoholic, he attended the meeting.

Con responded well to the fellowship of the meetings and the AA program. Along the way he met others attending AA who were not necessarily alcoholics, but found attending the meetings helped with their mental health.  Eventually this group of like-minded friends started to talk about forming a group to meet their own specific needs to help them recover their mental health.

If you need support for your mental wellbeing, GROW can help. We encourage new members to come along and see if it’s for them. There’s no obligation to continue if you feel it’s not for you.

Call 1800 558 268 and we’ll help you take the next steps. You may bring a support person (friend, family member) with you to your first three meetings.
