Bipolar UK's Mentoring service provides weekly telephone sessions with a trained volunteer mentor with lived experience relevant to your needs. The sessions provide support, advice and practical information. Through the Side by Side programme, we're now extending the Mentoring service to the following three areas: Rugby, Coventry and Northampton Blackpool, Blackburn, Darwen and Fleetwood Stockton, Middlesbrough and Darlington Working with Mind, Depression Alliance and 45 local groups and organisations, the Side by Side programme focuses on improving mental health peer support across England. Side by Side is a response to calls from people with experience of mental health problems to ensure that they have access to peer support across England, to look at why it works and to support its future sustainability. If you're interested in Mentoring or attending a Bipolar UK Support Group in these areas, please contact Julie Walker on [email protected] or call 07557 210 657 (Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm).
