EUSA Student Event

16 November 2017, 12:30 - 14:00

Teviot Row House

We’re delighted to be working with Edinburgh University Students’ Association to raise awareness of bipolar during their Mental Health and Wellbeing Week. EUSA reports: “We know that 1 in 4 of us will struggle with our mental health each year and many more will be affected by the stigma surrounding mental illness, but lots of us struggle to find the words to talk about how we’re feeling. That’s why we’re organising Mental Health and Wellbeing Week, running from 13 – 17 November, and we’ve got a whole range of events and activities planned.”

Event Information

#LetsTalk about Bipolar: Discussion and Networking
12:30-14:00, Balcony Room, Teviot Row House

Bipolar has been in the news a lot recently. But what is Bipolar and how does it affect people? Can people with Bipolar live normal lives? Bipolar is one of the most commonly misunderstood mental health conditions and the stigma surrounding it can be incredibly harmful for people living with the condition.

Come along to this event, hosted by the Lothian Bipolar Group, to find out more about Bipolar and what support is available for people living with the condition in an informal and informative discussion. The discussion will take approximately one hour, and will be followed by a networking session for students directly impacted by Bipolar.

If you’re a student at the University of Edinburgh then please join us!
