Summary of aims & objectives:

Bipolar UK is the national charity dedicated to supporting individuals affected by bipolar.

Services:

The services provided by Bipolar UK include:

  • Link Mentoring Service: Link Mentoring Service: a peer mentoring service where individuals with bipolar (or their family/carers) can be linked up with a Volunteer Mentor who has first-hand experience of living with bipolar. This gives the individual an opportunity to meet with a Mentor to discuss any issues or concerns they may have in respect of bipolar. Individuals can either be referred by an organisation/agency working with them or alternatively they can self-refer. Call us on 0333 323 4458
