Changes to our Support Line

Bipolar UK have adapted the Support Line to provide direct Peer Support. Therefore, the service no longer takes live incoming calls but provides the opportunity to leave a message and receive a call back from a member of the Peer Support team within 3 working days, usually less.  Alternatively, you can send an email to [email protected].

If you would like a Peer Support call from a staff member or volunteer who has been affected by the illness themselves,  email us and we will get back to you.

You may also find answers to questions on our Chatbot located on our website's homepage.

We can talk you through any issues you have on your mind and share our experience to help you find a way forward. The emphasis will be on self-management; using coping strategies in order to stay well.

To arrange a call back, email [email protected] with your contact details, or call or text our mobile on 07591375544

Why have Bipolar UK changed their Support Line from receiving live incoming calls? 

Bipolar UK from time to time has to review the services they offer in line with capacity and the strategic direction of the Charity, which provides Peer Support for people affected by Bipolar.

Consequently, by closing our live Support Line we are able to provide targeted bespoke Peer to Peer support by telephone or email.

This also reduces the expectation we are a response service to Crisis support, as other agencies are better placed to offer this support such as Mental Health Services, NHS 111, GP practices and Accident and Emergency departments.

Your donation will help provide a range of services offering the support people need, when they need it. You can make sure there's someone at the end of the phone to listen, a nearby group to share lived experiences, a 24-hour peer forum and more.

Together, we can support the person behind the diagnosis of bipolar.
