Our support groups are free and 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're interested in joining the group meetings please email [email protected] with "Central London 1st Friday support group" as the subject line. 

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

Central London support group details: 

Meets: 1st Friday of each month

Location: The Hinsley Room, Morpeth Terrace, Westminster Cathedral, SW1P 1EQ

Time: 5.30pm - 7.30pm

The room is through a black metal gate just opposite this address that leads down to a white door. There is a little yard space alongside the path.

Please note that our Central London group has a limited amount of places each month, therefore, seats at the meeting aren’t guaranteed on the day.

We advise arriving on time, or a bit earlier, if possible. If you are unable to access the support group we have a range of other services that you can use.
