We are sorry to announce that due to the Coronavirus situation and government advice, the decision has been made to put our face-to-face support groups on hold. We are sorry for any disappointment this causes, and want to assure you that we did not take this decision lightly.

We will update the group pages as soon as we are able to resume face-to-face meetings. In the meantime, some locations are engaging in online zoom meetings. If you would like to know more or join a local or national meeting please email here.

You should be comfortable with zoom as a platform and happy with their privacy and security notice before agreement to join a Bipolar UK zoom session. Details can be found here here. zoom recommends upgrading to v5 to incorporate the latest security updates.

If you have any questions regarding the online/remote groups, please view the zoom FAQs.

Bipolar UK is here to support you during this time and therefore we encourage everyone to use our other services – eCommunity and Peer Support Line.

Please also explore our website for resources and our Chatbot which has answers to a range of questions by clicking on the orange tab on the right hand side.

We will continue to update the information regarding the status of the support group meetings as the advice from the government changes. 

Background:

About: Our group has been running for over 30 years and is open to those affected by bipolar affective disorder (diagnosed, pre-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.

Meets: 2nd Thursday of every month.

Time: 7.30pm - 9.30pm

Location: The Bridge, Christchurch Avenue, Harrow, HA3 5BD

Accessibility: Ground floor, level access and disabled toilet.

If you have any questions or would like to find out more, please contact the Support Group Team on [email protected] or call 0333 323 3885.
