UNDERSTANDING AND MANAGING BIPOLAR DISORDER


Bipolar Disorder is a mental health condition characterised by unpredictable and extreme mood swings. It can be debilitating and destructive, but its symptoms and effects can be managed to some extent with methods to look after yourself and medication. Approximately 1% of the UK population is reckoned to suffer with Bipolar Disorder, mostly undiagnosed. All individuals have their own unique variant of the condition and all are affected differently.

This peer-led course aims to help sufferers gain insight into the nature of Bipolar Disorder and provide tools to help manage and regulate the mood swings. Difficult issues such as benefits, driving and employment will be covered. The course will run for 7 weeks.
