Bipolar UK collaborated with the National Centre for Mental Health (NCMH) at Cardiff University to organise a series of 3 self-management webinars.

In recent weeks we were delighted 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 were three sessions over three weeks.
