We’re a group of people who want to provide information, peer support and self-management guidance to individuals affected by bipolar. Group members have their own experience of bipolar and we help each other to stay well. We do this by meeting regularly in friendly and supportive environments, learning about the condition, investigating new treatments, sharing life stories, doing fun things like cinema trips and ten-pin bowling and more. Carers and friends/family are also most welcome as we know they play an important role in our wellness.

Our monthly meetings are listed in the events calendar and regular newsletters. The main meeting (for adults over 18 years) normally takes place at The Stafford Centre, 103 Broughton Street, Edinburgh, EH1 3RZ. Our gathering for 18-30 year olds is held in central Edinburgh. If you have questions about the group then please contact Bipolar Scotland on 0141 560 2050.


Please note that because of the current COVID-19 situation, the Lothian Group has cancelled all in-person social meetups (and activity sessions) until further notice. Please visit this website regularly for the latest updates and make sure you are subscribed to the mailing list.

We intend to host meetings and social meetups online for the foreseeable future. Please read the instructions for using Zoom.

Meanwhile, feel free to contact us via email info@lothianbipolargroup.org.uk or Facebook. Bipolar UK’s eCommunity is also available if you would like to access peer support.
