Our support groups are free and open to anyone affected by bipolar, including family, friends and loved ones. If you don't have a confirmed diagnosis and want to find out about bipolar, and related conditions such as cyclothymia, you are also welcome.

Anyone over 18 is welcome. If you're 16 or 17, please bring a parent or guardian.

The format of the meetings vary, but you will have the opportunity to introduce yourself, say how you are feeling using the Bipolar UK mood scale and may listen to an invited speaker. The groups are organised and facilitated by volunteers who are affected by bipolar in some way.

If you're interested in joining the meetings please email [email protected] with "Belfast 3rd Thursday support group" as the subject line.
