We're here to offer you practical information, advice and support by phone and email, as well as through information on our website. With advice on how to support a loved one, information on how to manage your bipolar and links to useful support services, we're here to help you.

Our peer support line does not receive incoming calls but provides the opportunity to leave a message and receive a call back from a member of the Peer Support team, we aim to do this within 3 working days, usually less, however, we are currently experiencing a higher demand for our services and appreciate your patience.

If you would like a call from a staff member or volunteer who has been affected by the illness themselves, please email us on [email protected] with your contact details and we will get back to you.

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.

Please note Bipolar UK do not provide crisis support as other agencies are better placed to offer this care such as Mental Health Services, NHS 111, GP practices, emergency services 999 and Accident and Emergency departments.
