Talking to someone could help you understand your situation better.

Mentoring takes place over the phone and you can receive support from a mentor wherever you live in the UK.

Mentoring could help if:

  • You're newly diagnosed with bipolar
  • You’re struggling with the condition
  • You care for someone with a diagnosis of bipolar

How does it work?

You'll be matched with a trained volunteer mentor who can provide one-to-one support over the telephone at an agreed time. Our mentors will listen to you, help you find ways to manage, and support you to access other helpful services.

Mentoring sessions last up to an hour and are usually held usually once a week or once a fortnight, based on your individual circumstances. You just need to have a quiet space to use for your session so you won’t be disturbed.

If you, or someone you know, would benefit from our mentoring service, please get in touch on 0333 323 4458 or email mentoring@bipolaruk.org
