On Tuesday 27 October 2020, Bipolar UK hosted an online conversation about ‘Being Your Best With Bipolar’, chaired by award-winning TV and radio presenter, Leah Charles-King. 

Leah was joined by actress April Kelley, podcast host Emma Belle, SAS Who Dares Wins star Bethany Robinson, actressNatasha Naomi Rea and Steve Gilbert OBE for services to Mental Health, who all have personal experience of living with bipolar and who are all passionate about encouraging understanding to empower others living with the condition.

The event followed recent research from Bipolar UK which found that many people living with bipolar were greatly impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. This included increased feelings of anxiety, amplified feelings of depression, and a greater desire to be alone.

Through sharing their experiences, the panellists hoped to empower people from the bipolar community to feel better supported and more inspired during this challenging time.
