I have Garry's Mod for Macintosh. I can download maps with ease, but I'm unsure how to download general mods and SWEPs.

The mods are written in Lua, so it shouldn't be an issue - have you actually tried it? Also, aren't mods downloaded automatically when you join a server in Garry's Mod? – BlueRaja - Danny Pflughoeft Aug 27 '12 at 20:54

Here you have disscusion on Steam Support about it.

Go to ~/Library/Application Support/Steam/SteamApps/[your username]/garrysmod/garrysmod/addons

Place the folder containing the info.txt file in that addons folder.

( ~ means your user directory, your "home" directory)

Hope it helps.
