Bipolar UK: Life-Changing Services Under Treat

January 24, 2013 — Leave a comment

Bipolar UK was the first organisation that I approached for help when I was first diagnosis with bipolar disorder NOS, and their help and support was invaluable. They provided free printed information, free telephone support, free user-lead support groups, and a very important forum space for people directly or indirectly affected with bipolar disorder. These services are now under threat.

In the current financial climate their income has dropped.

They’ve already had to make cuts to their essential services, but they refuse to become hostage to the recession and are fighting not to compromise any further.

In recent years Bipolar UK has invested a great deal of time and money into expanding our peer support, information and advice to meet demand. We are working as productively as we can, making each pound stretch as far as possible.

However a phone call from a distressed individual or family member takes time, resources and compassion to answer.

Telephone and email requests for information and support are currently rising by 35% per year and yet this is one of the services currently under threat.

This combination of lower income and unprecedented demand for their support is simply not sustainable. They are asking you to make a donation, however small, to help them through this ugly financial period and come out the other side as strong as before.

I’ve made a small donation today and would ask you to do the same. Every pound truly makes a difference.

Thank-you
