We are delighted to announce that next week we will be working with National Centre for Mental Health (NCMH) to pilot a bite-sized version of their award winning Bipolar Education Programme Cymru (BEPC), which is a group psychoeducation programme that aims to improve the quality of life for people with bipolar disorder. There will be three sessions over the three weeks, with the first starting on Wednesday next week. 

It’s free to attend, though participants are invited to make a donation to Bipolar UK and asked to complete an evaluation form following the webinars, so we can improve our content and impact.
