This year we decided to focus on the importance of supporting each other through hard times. Covid-19 has had a significant impact on all of us. We have seen a rise in stress, anxiety, low mood and behaviours associated with mania. We don’t know the long-term impact this will have on the public but our community is already vulnerable and at increased risk.
Our #TogetherWeOvercome campaign hopes to give a voice to people who attend and volunteer at our self-help groups and highlights how valuable peer support can be when dealing with bipolar. When lockdown came into effect our self-groups could no longer take place face to face, but our volunteers quickly adapted and moved them online.

Michelle, Bipolar Scotland Vice-Chair said: “COVID-19 has had a hugely negative impact on everyone’s lives particularly those already struggling with mental ill health. Bipolar Scotland acted quickly to provide ongoing support for their members and have moved their support groups online. Being able to speak to peers ‘face to face’ has most definitely helped many members of the group including myself.”
