Research About GROW

 
We encourage our members in GROW to cooperate with the professional help they may need. Research shows that mutual help groups are an important part of recovery.
 
Research conducted by Dr Lisabeth Finn
 
Dr Lisabeth Finn at Curtin University in Western Australia found that "Grow's major advantage is that it offers a ‘real life' mini-community where people can develop new skills. The benefits are concrete in terms of developing communication, social, life management and problem solving skills. But there are also improvements in the less tangible ‘quality of life' arena which come via gradual identity transformation in terms of development of a sense of being useful, valuable and belonging."
