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 Sheffield support meeting on the 1st (in-person and zoom) or 3rd  Thursday (zoom only) of the month, please email [email protected] with "Sheffield 1st or 3rd Thursday support group" as the subject line. Please note that the in-person group is also available to join via zoom.

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

We look forward to seeing you soon.
