Grow Tasmania – Mental Health Peer Support Program

Grow Tasmania are a facilitated mental health peer support program that commence on Friday night at 7.00pm at Kingston Neighbourhood House.

A facilitator manages the structure of the group but the members run the group (the members have mental health issues).

Grow may help some people in our community by providing a peer support group locally.  Grow are planning to continue sessions over Christmas and NY, a time when traditional support services are harder to access.

The group is directed by the members so they may be able to offer more sessions over holiday periods, for example.

Please have a look at the Grow Tasmania website to get a bit of an idea about how they operate.

A member becomes a member by rocking up to their meetings, people can bring a friend and don’t have to talk or raise issues until they are comfortable.
