These courses are exclusively available to members of Bipolar Scotland, and free for members to attend.

If you would like to become a member you can sign up here or by calling our office on 0141 560 2050.
This course has been designed to help introduce the principles of self-management to anyone living with bipolar.
You’ll join up to 11 other participants to explore what bipolar means for you, learn new self-management tools and strategies, and feel better able to plan for the future and take back control of your life.
It is important to be aware that there is a large discussion and participatory element of this course. With this in mind, we ask that participants feel in a robust enough place in their recovery to engage fully in discussions about bipolar and challenges related to self-management.
We will cover the following topics across two full-days:
Triggers and warning signs
Coping strategies, medication management and preparing for the future
Self-Management Lite (Online) Training
This course is adapted from our full self-management training, and has been condensed to be delivered across four two-hour online sessions. This course is ideal for anyone who is worried about the intensity of attending the full two-day in-person course.
Self-management Lite courses are often delivered in the evening, making them accessible to anyone who has work or caring responsibilities during the day.
Self-Management (Online) Training for Friends and Family
We understand that supporting a friend or family member with bipolar can have a significant impact on your own mental health and leave you feeling isolated, disempowered, and unsure of how to move forward.
This course is delivered across four two-hour online sessions and aims to bring together friends, family and carers of people living with bipolar to offer psychoeducation, practical advice and tools for self-care, as well as strategies for supporting those you care about.
