Nottingham is recognising World Bipolar Day on 29 March with celebration event

The Bipolar Lift CIC which provides holistic support for those living with bipolar disorder and their family and friends are hosting a celebration to highlight the issues faced by those affected by the illness.

The Nottingham-based organisation endeavours to improve the overall health and well-being of those individuals by providing both emotional and practical support, including talking therapy through one-to-one sessions or group therapy sessions, nature walks and excursions and support with personal finances.

By providing complete support in those core areas of an individual’s life, they aim to improve the person’s overall well-being and help them feel back in control of their lives. 

Furthermore, each service user is provided with a tailored care plan or self-help plans to ensure the varying needs of the individual are recognised and met.

Being based in Nottingham, face-to-face support is offered to local service users but telephone and Zoom support is offered nationally.

The Bipolar Lift fills a real unmet need in our community and was founded and managed by an individual diagnosed with bipolar disorder.

The Bipolar Lift is currently working with around 210 bipolar disorder sufferers and aims to increase this number with each year that we are active.

The event will take place in Nottingham, Trent Bridge on Wednesday 29th March and anyone who has bipolar, their family and friends are invited to share their experiences and enjoy some light lunch and a performance from local singer Alice Lynn.

If you would like to attend, please email The Bipolar Lift at support@bipolarlift.org or call them on 07534 138 512 to register your attendance.
