Sheffield Peer Support Group

There are two Bipolar UK support groups in Sheffield. They run on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month, from 7.00pm – 9.00pm, and they take place on Zoom.

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.

To register your interest, please email supportgroups@bipolaruk.org with either “Sheffield 3rd Thursday of the month online support group” or  “Sheffield 1st Thursday of the month online support group” as the subject line.

Covid update 27/09/21: Most services continue under covid-safe conditions but may be experiencing changes to how or when they deliver their service. Contact Bipolar UK directly for the latest information.
