We run 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.
Check our calendar (below) for the next group in your area, and please read the House Rules at the foot of the page before attending. Groups run by Bipolar Edinburgh can be found here, details for the Bipolar Aberdeen meeting can be found here.

Adults living with bipolar, friends, family and carers of people with bipolar. Anyone affected by bipolar is welcome.
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.
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.
On The Level, our bi-monthly e-magazine for people in Scotland living with bipolar, is packed full of articles, case studies, news and opportunities to take part in research. Why not sign up to receive it and join the caring, informed Bipolar Scotland community?
