Description

The Lothian Bipolar Self-help Group brings people together who want to provide information, peer support and self-management guidance to individuals affected by bipolar.

Group members have their own experience of bipolar and help each other to stay well. Members meet regularly in friendly and supportive environments, learning about the condition, investigating new treatments, sharing life stories, doing fun things like meeting for coffee, cinema trips and attending ice hockey matches. Carers and friends/family are also very welcome – they play an important role in helping maintain wellbeing. The group’s website provides information about bipolar and links to helpful information sources.

The main group welcomes adults of all ages and meets at the Stafford Centre, 103 Broughton Street, Edinburgh, EH1 3RZ

During the COVID-19 lockdown, online meetings are being offered.
