Bipolar Support Group

The ARAFEMI Bipolar Support Group is a mutual support group for people who experience bipolar disorder.

The purpose of the group is to provide an opportunity for people living with bipolar affective disorder to connect with those with similar experiences. Group members gain strength and support from each other, and learn new ways of coping through sharing feelings, knowledge, information and ideas. Speakers on topics like mental health services or health and well-being are arranged by agreement with the support group members.

The group is facilitated by a mental health professional. The role of the facilitator is to guide discussion and to assist group members to share experiences and knowledge, and give and receive support.


If you are new to the group, please phone the ARAFEMI office on phone: 03 9810 9300 for information about the group before coming along for the first time.

Meets: 3rd Wednesday evening of the month (February-November), 7.00pm-9.00pm.
