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

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 would like to join the Bristol in-person support meeting on the 1st Friday of the month, please email [email protected] with "Bristol support group 1st Friday" as the subject line.

If you would like to join the Bristol online (zoom) support meeting on the 3rd Thursday of the month, please email [email protected] with "Bristol online support group 3rd Thursday" as the subject line.

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

We look forward to seeing you soon.
