About Us

Our Beginnings

Founded in 1992, we are Scotland’s national charity for everyone who lives with bipolar disorder and those who care for them. We:

Challenge stigma and discrimination while representing the views of people who live with bipolar to politicians and health professionals.

Run self-help groups throughout Scotland. 

Provide training courses on how to self-manage bipolar.

Provide useful information on everything to do with bipolar.

Our Members

Our members decide our priorities and we’re governed by a Board of Directors elected at our Annual Conference. Each Director serves for three years and must be re-elected to continue as a Director – most of our Directors live with bipolar disorder.

The Board meets every six weeks to govern Bipolar Scotland while our Chief
Executive manages us on a day to day basis.
