EVENT: mental health forum

Managing and understanding bipolar disorder

Dudley and Walsall Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust is hosting a free event for members of the public which focusses on the topic of bipolar disorder.

The free mental health forum event, which takes place in the same month as Time to Talk Day*, will explore the ways of how to manage and understand the condition.

Professionals will be on hand to offer top tips, advice and more information on services for those who live with or support someone with bipolar disorder. Attendees will also hear service user experiences and will be able to talk to local services during the networking lunch.

The event is being held on Wednesday 13th February 2019, 11am until 1pm at St Paul’s Church at The Crossing, Darwall Street, Walsall, WS1 1DA.

Mark Axcell, Chief Executive at Dudley and Walsall Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust, said, “Bipolar disorder is something that affects so many people and so I feel it’s extremely important for more awareness to be raised and that members of the public take the time to understand the condition.”

Free lunch will be provided at the event. To book a place please email dwmh.communication@nhs.net or call 01384 325015 to secure a place at this free event or for more information.
