Lincoln Bipolar Peer Support Group

Back to Support
Last Updated: 01/02/2024

Our support groups are free and 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.

1pm-3pm, on the first Saturday of the month.

If you are interested in joining the group meetings, please email [email protected] with "Lincoln 1st Saturday support group " as the subject line.

This is good for wellbeing because

  • Anyone affected by bipolar can receive support, and access to a community of empathetic individuals also affected by the condition - including the volunteer co-facilitators.
  • Groups enable those with bipolar to feel supported, included and increased feelings of resilience.
  • Attendees can gain more information on bipolar, listen to expert speakers who are occasionally invited, and learn more about support Bipolar UK can provide out of group sessions - including our Peer Support Line, eCommunity and Mood Tracker App.

My local support group has been my lifeline for the past six years. I attend all the meetings and social events and have made a wonderful bunch of friends. I can’t imagine that I’d be coping with my condition so well if I didn’t have such amazing support just round the corner.
