Support group meeting Code of Conduct

To ensure that each support group is a safe space, we ask that members read and adhere to the following rules:

- Support groups are confidential spaces, do not share personal information divulged in a meeting.

- Be courteous, listen and show respect to each other and the group facilitator.

- The group facilitator may at times guide the conversations to keep the meeting generally focused on bipolar disorder and away from inappropriate topics.

- Allow everyone to have their say.

- Respect opinions that are different to yours.

- Refrain from using abusive, offensive and inappropriate language.

- Threatening physical behaviour will not be tolerated.

- Exploitation of group members whether it be: sexually, physically, emotionally, financially or in any other way that is deemed inappropriate will not be condoned.

By entering our meeting, you are agreeing to our policies and procedures and will agree to adhere to them.

Anyone who infringes the rules of the group will be asked to leave.

The views expressed within the group don’t necessarily represent the views of Bipolar Life Victoria.

Never forget a support group again. Sign up to our SMS reminders and we'll send you a reminder the morning of the meeting. You can sign up for multiple meetings and if you ever want to unsubscribe, there will be a link in the message.

It's a good idea to sign up for these alerts even if you don't usually forget, that way if a meeting gets cancelled at the last minute or we go into a sudden lockdown, you will be informed.

Bentleigh support group

The Bentleigh Bipolar Support Group holds its monthly meetings at the Godfrey Street Community House, 9 Godfrey St, Bentleigh 3204. We meet on the 2nd Thursday of each month from 7.30pm to 9.00pm.

The purpose of our support group is to provide an opportunity for people living with bipolar disorder to connect with other diagnosed people with similar experiences. Group members gain strength and support from each other, and learn new ways of coping through sharing feelings, knowledge, information and ideas.

Speakers on topics like mental health services or health and well-being are also arranged at regular intervals. There is no requirement to book, just come along and it’s free. You will be made most welcome.

Note: Godfrey House is just a short 3 minute walk from Bentleigh station.

In the event of a COVID-19 lockdown our meeting will switch to Zoom.
