Making a significant difference to the lives of Bipolar Disorder sufferers, their friends and families.
Our service will enable people who are excluded – through prejudice, discrimination or isolation – to live more fulfilling lives. We have a qualified Bipolar Disorder worker with experience to compliment our team of volunteer Engagement Specialist, Social Workers and our Financial Support worker. We will only provide face-to-face meetings to Bipolar Disorder Sufferers in the Nottingham/Nottinghamshire area.
The impact we aim to achieve is firstly to encourage Bipolar Disorder sufferers to be able to talk openly about any issues that are worrying them. The Bipolar Lift will aim to provide a solutions to their employer and financial issues by addressing them and communicating with them. Benefit and welfare support, employment advice and 'Managing Myself' care and career plans will provide some sort of medium term focus. We aim to help the Bipolar Disorder sufferer to reach a place of reduced stress, achieve plans and most importantly in a place where they can speak to us when they are feeling very low and suicidal.
