If even your imaginary friend thinks you have mental problems, Hong Kong’s first BIPOLAR SUPPORT GROUP could be for you. EVERYBODY WELCOME!
We are a motley crew of Hong Kong-based professionals, artists and students who have each, at some recent or long ago stage in our lives, been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Our support groups are peer-led by us. By sharing our stories and being afforded an opportunity to vent to those who have a far better chance of being able to understand us than our non-bipolar friends and family, we have each found the benefits of meeting regularly.
PLEASE NOTE: We used to meet at 7pm on the last Monday of every month at Starbucks Sai Kung. However, due to popular demand from Centralites (who equate a 40 minute bus journey to Sai Kung with a space voyage to the Moon) we now alternate between Sai Kung and Starbucks on Duddell Street in the heart of Central. So, monthly meetings won’t always be a few steps from your door, but you won’t always have to make the pilgrimage to Sai Kung either.
Should you prefer to attend group from the comfort of your own home, email us your Skype details. If you wish to keep your mental health a secret even from us (!), you are probably being a little paranoid (we’ve all been there!) but you can still join our support group anonymously by setting up a fake Skype address and wearing a wig, fake mustache, beard and robbing your Granny’s glasses (unless you are a granny and already wear glasses, in which case don’t bother – just squint at the screen.)
We look forward to welcoming you to our Peer-Led Bipolar Support Group – Hong Kong’s first! – in whatever shape, form or attire you wish to join us!
This is NOT what goes down at monthly Bipolar HK Support Group meetings
