Abstract: For over 30 years, the Ryde Bipolar Support Group has provided a forum in which people who have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, as well as carers and friends, have exchanged information in an accepting, non-judgemental environment. This snapshot outlines the group’s history and my personal involvement with it, first as a consumer and subsequently as a facilitator.
