Bipolar Support for Perinatal (Pregnancy and Postpartum) Moms and Birthing People

Bipolar Support for Perinatal Moms and Birthing People

1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month @ 11:30AM, 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month @ 8PM

Our perinatal (pregnancy & postpartum) bipolar support group for moms and birthing people is here to help those navigating symptoms of bipolar, like depression (lows) and mania (highs). Our online groups are here to help you connect with others, talk about your experience, and learn about helpful tools and resources. You do not have to have an official diagnosis to attend the group.

Bipolar Support for Perinatal Moms and Birthing People

These groups are led by PSI-trained support group leaders who have lived experience and/or professional experience. They understand the emotional challenges of pregnancy and postpartum as a mom or birthing person living with bipolar disorder.

Our groups are conducted using a peer-to-peer support model, and are not intended for those experiencing a mental health crisis. Please reach out to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (1-800-273-8255) if you are in need of crisis support.

You are not alone. We are here to help.

PSI Support Groups

All of our groups are FREE and virtual. When registering for Sharewell for the first time skip the unlimited offer on the payment page.

What to Expect

Our groups are 90 minutes (1.5 hours) in length. The first ~30 minutes is providing information, education, and establishing group guidelines. The next ~60 minutes is “talk time,” in which group members share and talk with each other. Group members must be present for the group guidelines before joining in the discussion or “talk time.”

Student and clinical observations are not allowed in our group spaces due to confidentiality and creating a safe space
