The ‘Your Mental Health’ awareness campaign, which aims to improve awareness and understanding of mental health and well-being in Ireland. This is particularly important in the present economic climate when we are under financial pressures, losing our job or facing relationship difficulties. This is particularly important in these tough economic times when business difficulties and financial problems are impacting on everyone. This can lead to pressures on individuals, relationships, families and friends.

GROW is a Mental Health Organisation which helps people who have suffered, or are suffering, from mental health problems.

GROW, founded in Australia in 1957 by former mental sufferers, has a national network of over 130 Groups in Ireland.
