On World Bipolar Day, 30th March 2021 we will be coming together for a virtual conference which is free to attend! This will be the largest gathering of people affected by bipolar in 2021.
As the conference is online you can join from anywhere in the country. There are 11.4 million people live in rural communities in the UK of which an estimated 228,000 will be living with bipolar. The conference will highlight how they you can get support online during the coronavirus pandemic, especially given that services are often difficult to access in rural areas. There will be a choice of Breakout Rooms with sessions on recovery from the stresses of the pandemic, medication and research.
The conference is open to anyone affected by bipolar, including pre- and post-diagnosis, friends and family and professionals. There will be a session called “Bipolar Basics: Everything you need to know” for the newly and pre-diagnosed and their friends and family. The day will end with a panel discussion with our inspirational Ambassadors, who have all been impacted by bipolar and still managed to fulfil their potential.
We will also be launching the Bipolar Commission, our research programme that will be using lived experience to transform the health system for people affected by bipolar, including those living in rural community. We will be campaigning for everyone, wherever they live in the UK, to have access to high quality care for bipolar as part of the Commission Project.
