Sheffield Peer Support Group

There are two Bipolar UK support groups in Sheffield. They run on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month, from 7.00pm – 9.00pm at Sheffield Scout HQ, 60-68 Trippet Lane, Sheffield, S1 4EL, or you can join via zoom.

The format of the meetings vary, but you will have the opportunity to introduce yourself, say how you are feeling using the Bipolar UK mood scale and may listen to an invited speaker. The groups are organised and facilitated by volunteers who are affected by bipolar in some way.

To register your interest, please email with either ‘Sheffield 1st Thursday support group’ or ‘Sheffield 3rd Thursday support group’ as the subject line.
