Our Support Groups are free to attend and are open to anyone affected by bipolar, including family, friends and carers. If you do not 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 meetings please email [email protected] with "North Staffs 2nd Wednesday support group" as the subject line.

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