Bipolar Carers Support Group

Bipolar Disorder involves episodes of extreme mood shifts that range from extreme highs to extreme lows. There are generally three types of episodes that can occur in bipolar disorder: manic phase (extreme high), hypomanic phase (less extreme high) and depressive phase (extreme low). These extremes in mood can make it difficult for individuals to manage everyday tasks such as work, school and maintaining relationships.

The ABS reports that approximately 2.9% of the Australian population aged 16 and over have Bipolar Disorder. The carers of those with Bipolar disorder play a major role in helping the ones affected live a near normal life. The care givers need care too and this support group welcomes carers to network once a month and discuss coping strategies for the mental stress they endure. This group is a non-judgemental and safe space to discuss with peer care givers and will be led by a trained facilitator.
