If you live with Bipolar Disorder and you’d like to share information, advice and experience with other people in a similar situation, please do come along to the Borders Bipolar Group. We meet on the 2nd Monday of every month (7- 9pm) at the Gala Resource Centre, 69 Gala Park, Galashiels TD1 1EZ and you’re very welcome to join – no referral needed! We’re a friendly bunch and we’re also open to friends, family, carers and partners of people with a bipolar diagnosis – anyone whose life has been affected by the condition. This is your chance to share advice and insights in a friendly non-clinical setting and meet new people. Our group also has occasional guest speakers who can talk about bipolar disorder from a range of angles (e.g. social workers, psychiatrists, mindfulness, getting back into work, staying fit etc). We’re affiliated to Bipolar Scotland and you can learn more about the national organisation at www.bipolarscotland.org.uk. It costs nothing to attend our group and we hope to see you there J!!
