Our Support Groups are free to attend and are open to anyone affected by bipolar, including family, friends and carers. Find out more about what happens at a Support Group.

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 meetings via zoom or Microsoft Teams. 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.
