Bipolar disorder affects not only the life of the person with bipolar but the lives of those who care for them. Close family and friends can be a primary source of support for a person with bipolar disorder and this can negatively impact on their own wellbeing. Our carer support group provides a confidential environment free of scrutiny and judgement. We believe everyone has information and knowledge to share, a success story, or strategies in coping with being a carer of a person with bipolar. Our bipolar carer support group meets at 7.00pm on the first Monday of each month at suite J/450 Chapel Street, South Yarra. Enter via Wilson street (Bamburgh House).
