  • Bipolar Scotland

Description

Peers Together is Bipolar Scotland’s programme of one-to-one peer support for anyone in Scotland who lives with bipolar, providing up to 12 meetings (usually virtual or by telephone) with a Peer Worker or Peer Volunteer.

Whatever your situation, and however long you have been living with bipolar, we believe there’s opportunity to learn new ways to live well by connecting with another person who also lives with the condition. If you are newly diagnosed, our Beyond Diagnosis programme may be more suitable for you.

Peers Together is run by Bipolar Scotland, Scotland’s national charity for people who live with bipolar. All of our peer workers and volunteers go through a rigorous training process before taking up their roles.
