Description

Who are we?

Manic Depression Fellowship (Scotland) was formed in 1992 and became a company limited by guarantee in 1996. In 2004, the Fellowship’s name was changed to Bipolar Fellowship Scotland. In 2010 it was agreed that the organisation should be re-named Bipolar Scotland.

Bipolar Scotland is a membership-based voluntary sector organisation. It is administered by a Board of Directors. The majority of directors either have a diagnosis of bipolar disorder or care for someone with the diagnosis. Bipolar Scotland employs a team of staff who are responsible for carrying out its work.

We provide information, support and advice for people affected by bipolar disorder / manic depression and those who care for them.

We also promote self-help throughout Scotland, and inform and educate people about the condition.

Bipolar Scotland’s work covers the following areas:

- Support for a network of self-help groups throughout Scotland.
- Promoting and running self-management training courses.
- Providing information on bipolar disorder (through the website, books, information booklets, leaflets and a quarterly newsletter).
- Providing training and talks to various organisations/groups.
- Representation and input to national and local committees/forums.
- Providing input to research projects.
- Contributing to both statutory and independent sector reports on mental health services.
