About the event
This is a hybrid meeting giving attendees the choice to either join us at our venue, The Melting Pot, 15 Calton Road, EH8 8DL, or online via Zoom. The meeting is for everyone affected by bipolar including carers, family, and friends. The meeting provides a safe confidential space to access mutual peer support and learn different ways of managing bipolar including sharing personal experiences of living with bipolar.
We normally have a guest speaker talking about a topic around self-management and this month we'll be joined by Nick Woodhead, Health and Wellbeing Development Officer with Volunteer Edinburgh. Nick will be talking about some of the services and support available at Volunteer Edinburgh through their Health & Wellbeing Team.
After the talk we chat for a while over tea and coffee at the marvellous Melting Pot. The meeting finishes at 8:45pm. Please feel free to stay on Zoom for a chat after the speaker finishes!
NB: If you are attending in-person for the first time, then please RSVP to the Introduction & Welcome event which takes place immediately before the meeting. Don't worry: you don't need to RSVP to both events, just to the Introduction & Welcome!
If you are joining us via Zoom for the first time, then please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a brief welcome and introduction session over Zoom where we can answer any questions you might have.
Once you've attended our Introduction & Welcome session in-person or via Zoom, then you are free to RSVP to all subsequent activities both in-person or via Zoom. They are mostly free. Please read our Comfort Agreement which is in place to make sure everyone has a safe and comfortable space to share personal experiences.
