Philosophy

The Grow program provides Psychosocial Rehabilitation (or PSR) services designed to promote personal recovery, successful community integration, and maintenance of a satisfactory quality of life.

PSR focuses on helping individuals develop skills, access resources and improve their quality of life by building on their strengths. Individuals set their own goals and choose how to achieve them. 

 

At Grow we believe:

Everyone has the potential and right to lead a purposeful life.

A supportive environment is central to achieving goals and maintaining structure.

Engaging in meaningful activities and being with others helps promote recovery.

Individuals are not defined by their mental illness.

 

Grow addresses all dimensions of wellness – the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.

Our service integrates staff and clients’ ideas in developing activities and groups in order to meet individuals’ needs and interests.
