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. The meeting on the 1st Thursday of the month is face-to-face at Sheffield Quaker Meeting House (though you can join online as well). The meeting on the 3rd Thursday of the month is online only via 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 firstname.lastname@example.org with either “Sheffield 1st Thursday support group” (for the 1st Thu of the month group) or “Sheffield online support group” (for the 3rd Thu of the month group) as the subject line.
