Support Groups

Bipolar Scotland grew out of support groups that remain hugely important to us. A number of online and in-person groups run across Scotland to bring together people living with bipolar to share and learn from one another.

Our groups are places where people who live with bipolar can share ideas and information on how to improve their quality of life. We keep the tone of the meetings positive, and solution focused.

Who are the support groups for?

Adults living with bipolar, friends, family and carers of people with bipolar. Anyone affected by bipolar is welcome.

Who facilitates the groups?

Volunteers who go through a robust recruitment and training process. We recruit for new volunteer facilitators throughout the year and are always keen to hear from people who may like to get involved.

There are groups available in many local areas and we encourage you to join your nearest group, even if they are currently online. We also have an 18-30 online group for younger people, a Friends and Family online group and our Bipolar Blether online group. As these groups are run online, they’re open to anyone in Scotland who would like to join.

How do I join a group?

Groups are free to attend, and you don’t have to be a member of Bipolar Scotland to access them. If you would like to come along, all you need to do is complete a short form and one of our team will be in touch as soon as possible to connect you.

We have created some ‘house rules’ that we ask everyone to familiarise themselves with before attending.
