- Sheila Woodland and Philomena Germing started Bipolar UK in 1983 after each one reached out to the general public asking to form a society. The idea behind setting up the organisation was to dispel the stigma, secrecy and widespread ignorance of manic depression.
- The charity needs donations to keep conducting high-quality research to improve its services, as well as lead service and policy developments.
- The charity also runs online support centres and services to help employers and employees deal with bipolar in the workplace with support over the phone and via email. Together, we can help support Bipolar UK by signing up to Savoo and selecting it as your charity to receive free donations whenever you shop online.
