Bipolar UK has made recent changes to our work and learning service, to broaden support to people affected by bipolar both in the workplace, in education or perhaps considering a return to work or study.
We offer online webinars about work and learning, to explore topics such as:
and to learn about what support you are entitled to and how you can access it.
If you are an employer you may find it helpful to refer to our employer guide
If you are an employee you may find our employee guide a helpful starting point on what support is available in the workplace
Check out Frequently Asked Questions and other resources and real life stories in our Work and Learning blog
Our eCommunity is also a space where you can receive peer support on employment and a range of other topics.
Volunteering can be a great way to build gaps on your CV and to gain experience in a different role before returning to work. We would also love to hear from people interested in becoming a telephone volunteer with this service to enable us to provide more support to people affected by work and learning issues.
