In 2011, we publicly consulted on key strategic planning issues. The phenomenal response led to the development of a new five-year strategy, annual report and a new charity name – Bipolar UK. Alongside our service delivery work, we have also raised public awareness and understanding of bipolar and its effects. Two notable successes have been working with King’s College London to conduct research into Advance Choice Documents, which influenced the Independent Review of the Mental Health Act and research into the role of digital technology in self-management, which resulted in our prototype chatbot and Zoom peer support groups being created.
The future of Bipolar UK
In the years ahead, providing peer support services remain central to everything we do. Hundreds of thousands of people affected by bipolar still lack basic support and self-management knowledge. We are looking to use digital technology to scale up and expand our existing provision to ensure everyone affected by bipolar can live well and achieve their potential.
Bipolar UK remains committed to being your innovative, sustainable national bipolar charity.
