Bipolar UK runs over 100 Peer Support Groups across the UK. They are run by trained co-facilitators, and provide a safe, warm and welcoming environment for people who are affected by bipolar disorder, whether directly or indirectly, to meet and discuss what they may have on their minds. As well as regular attendees, some groups also host events and guest speakers.

This month we are focusing on the incredible work done by the Harrow Support Group, and inviting anyone in the area who needs support to come along. For more information about the Harrow group, or to find your local Support Group, click here.

About Harrow Support Group

Our group has been running for over 30 years and is open to those affected by bipolar affective disorder (diagnosed, think they may have the disorder but haven’t received an official diagnosis and those who support us).

Our meetings are set in a comfortable facility and offer a safe space to share experiences and knowledge. We have a summer BBQ in the gardens of our venue. We have a “bring and share food” social for our December meeting. The other meetings are either a regular group meeting, or we have guest speakers (typically psychologists, psychiatrists and nutritionists)

We also have a small lending library of books for our attendees.


This support group is currently on hold and will start up its in-person meetings as soon as possible in accordance with safety guidelines.

Our support groups are free and open to anyone affected by bipolar, including family, friends and carers
