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 peer support and learn new ways of managing bipolar including sharing our personal experiences. We normally have a guest speaker at the beginning of the meeting talking about a topic relating to bipolar then have a chat 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!
We will be joined at the meeting by Arlene Astley, Operations and Development Manager with Advocard. Arlene will be updating us on on the recent changes to welfare benefits such as Personal Independence Payment (PIP).
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 via Zoom for the first time, then please email us at email@example.com 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.
