The experience of mental illness can have a significant cost to individuals, their families, employers and the communities we live in. People withBipolar / Manic Depression can learn to manage their mood swings effectively, given the necessary tools that promote wellness to lead rewarding and satisfying lives. Providing individuals with information and the tools for self-care allows people to take greater personal responsibility in the long term and to move forward with confidence.
We provide information about the disorder, run peer support groups, offer a one to one support service and run education and information sessions. Our focus is on the needs of people within Christchurch city but we do send our pamphlets (link to pamphlets page) out within New Zealand.
