I wanted to know if there is anyone here that has Bipolar and lives in Sydney Australia? I am annoyed that if you are gay for instance it is very easy to find a social support network in gay bars/clubs in the city, but if you have a mental illness like Bipolar you don't have the same type of support. I have Bipolar Disorder yet I don't know anyone that has Bipolar, which makes me feel very isolated because the only people that I can discuss Bipolar issues with is online, and that is not the same as discussing them with others in your area who have been through the same thing. There are support groups here as an outpatient, but you have to pay to be a member, and I was interested in meeting with others in a more social informal setting, to provide friendly support for one another.
