I did a quick search on Google and could not find any information there too on Support Group for Bipolar Disorder in Singapore. But I found a website in which 15 people in Singapore has indicated their desire for a Bipolar Disorder Meetup :
One of my blogging friends, Marja Bergen of " Roller Coaster" has shared about the mood disorder Support Group in her church called" Living Room".
After reading the email from N and reading about the other 14 people (N was one of them too) on their desire for a Bipolar Disorder Meetup, I can see that here seemed to be a dire need for such a Support Group in Singapore, whether it be a Christian Group or non-religious Group, depending on the faith of those needing it.
I am not very sure whether there is an existing Support Group for Bipolar Disorder in Singapore. I will try again to look and find out. Let me know if you are aware of such a group.
If you are in Singapore, and you or your loved ones/family/friends are suffering from bipolar disorder (manic-depressive illness), and you are keen to attend a Bipolar Disorder Meetup or Support Group, please leave me a note in my comments to share with me your thoughts or desire. Or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will love to hear from you.
Share with me your thoughts, if any. Thanks!
(Note: I just found out that in Singapore there are Support Groups available for various mood disorders which involves depression. These mood disorders can be major depression, bipolar disorder (manic-depressive illness), anxiety disorders, Schizophrenia, etc etc.)
