Bipolar UK - Link Mentoring
Telephone based peer mentoring

Bipolar UK

Bipolar UK is the national charity dedicated to supporting individuals with the much misunderstood and devastating condition of bipolar, their families and carers.

We provide a range of services to enable people affected by bipolar and associated illnesses to take control of their lives.


Each year we reach out to and support over 65,000 individuals through our services and information/advice publications.


We also work in partnership with research organisations and campaign for new developments to tackle key issues.


We believe the key to coping with bipolar is an early diagnosis, acceptance of the illness and adapting your lifestyle


Management of the illness can be achieved through strategies involving medication, health care, therapy and self management.


We work to ensure all individuals with bipolar can manage their illness and lead independent lives. We endorse the principles of equality and diversity in all our activities.


With the amazing support of our staff team, volunteers, members, service users, supporters and partnering organisations we all work to support individuals affected by bipolar.

Link Mentoring - London

Our London - Link Mentoring service offers telephone-based peer mentoring on a one-to-one basis for people affected by bipolar and aims to provide support, advice and practical information.


The mentoring sessions happen on a regular basis via telephone and are delivered by Volunteer Mentors who have a diagnosis of bipolar or who have first-hand experience of living with someone with bipolar.


Access our mentoring service

Link mentoring is available to anyone in London who is affected by bipolar.


You would be matched with a volunteer mentor who would provide one-to-one support via the telephone at agreed regular times.


This support is for a limited time to help you get a better understanding of your situation and help you transition onto other services such as our self help groups.


If you think you or someone you know would benefit from our mentoring service, please contact Richard on 020 7931 6479 or

Volunteers as a mentor

Individuals with a diagnosis of bipolar, who are living well with the condition, or their family/carers, can volunteer to become Volunteer Mentors. All Volunteer Mentors undergo a DBS check and reference check, and receive training before actively mentoring.


If you are interested in becoming a volunteer mentor, or think that you or someone you know would benefit from mentoring, please get in touch for an informal chat.
