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 Penrith online (Zoom) support meeting on the first Monday of the month (12.30pm-1.30pm), please book a free ticket through this page (below). You will receive the link via email and a reminder email before the meeting. Please note that our Penrith support group has been temporarily merged online with our Carlisle support group.

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

We look forward to seeing you soon.
