Support Groups

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 click on the group you want to join. 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

Who are the support groups for?

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

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 general discussion online group. As these groups are run online, they’re open to anyone in Scotland who would like to join.

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.

Some of our volunteers are people with lived experience of bipolar, others are students or people working in the area; some of our volunteers are just people who want to give something back. If you think you can help facilitate these lifeline groups,  please do contact us

 

 

 

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 click on the relevant calendar entry to complete a short form and one of our team will be in touch as soon as possible to connect you.

Please do read our House Rules before attending the group.
