Goals of the Group

This group is for individuals who are diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder. In its essence it is a very exhausting experience , akin to an emotional roller coaster of sorts and can often lead to alot of isolation. All the shame and guilt that comes with the difficulty around explaining one’s psychic experience can lead to more distress and stigma. The goal here is to provide a supportive space for people to come together and share their experiences with each other , and hear more voices and perspectives. We will also try and explore your distress in a socio-political-cultural context and what that means for each member in the group.

Who is the group for?

This group is for indidivuals who struggle with Bipolar disorder and are looking for a supportive safe space to explore and understand better their psychic and emotional experience.

What will we talk about?

• Nature of your distress.
• How do you feel about the approaching and retreat of an episode ?
• What comes with a diagnosis ?
• How to seek and receive support .
• How it impacts your relationships and other areas of life?
• What has and hasn’t helped you over time.
• Understanding boundaries, your own and that of others.
• Exploring the emotional and bodily exhaustion of mood swings.
• Psychopharmacology and its impact on other areas of life.

  • I was talking about this group with my therapist, and about how nice it is so have a community that understands me. This group reminds me to take my meds, to stay sober. It reminds me to get to a doctor when I’m in the middle of a episode. It also reminds me that I have the ability to take control of my illness and not let it ruin my life.


    Diagnosed with Bipolar 1

  • I've been going through a rough year, I've been particularly unwell. I think this is the most ill I've been since diagnosis.You've been there for my ups and downs. You've talked me out of big holes and down from the ledge. Thank you for everything 💜


    Dealing with Bipolar and anxiety

  • Thank you VERY MUCH for being part of this place and creating somewhere we can openly discuss dealing with bipolar! Stuff still hard as ever, lots of ups and downs, but if not for this group I wouldn't have been able to accept who I am.

Check Out. Participants share what they're taking away from the session.

What am i going to get out of this?
