The GROW mission is to promote mental health recovery, personal growth and prevention within our weekly mutual help support groups and throughout our supportive community.

Visitor from GROW In New Zealand August 2019

Tim Bishop, a GROWer from New Zealand, visited two community groups in Chicago in early August. Tim visited the Pullman group on Chicago’s South Side and gave his testimony before the almost 20 attendees. Tanya Hicks-Coopwood is the Pullman group Organizer. She is assisted by Alicia Bradley who is Organizer of the TREAD group.

Mr. Bishop visited the Evanston group in northeastern Chicago. Kevin Atoji-Walker is the Organizer of the group which meets at St. Francis hospital and reported that everyone enjoyed Tim’s company and testimony.

Tim reported that GROW In New Zealand has lost some funding and support for the fieldworkers as in the USA. Fieldworkers insure that the groups follow the GROW program, Organizers obtain training, and that the groups support each other.
