Borders Bipolar Group Facilitators required

BPS-Master-Logo-small 002Could you spare 1 evening a month to help facilitate a self help group for people with bipolar disorder and their carers in Galashiels? 

The Borders Bipolar Group meets on the second Monday of every month.

This is an opportunity to help people who live with bipolar disorder learn how to manage and understand the condition. Our Borders Bipolar Group is looking for two Facilitators to run these regular monthly meetings. All our groups have two facilitators and - in addition to co-facilitating the regular monthly meetings - one facilitator will book guest speakers (3 or 4 per year) while the other records attendance at the group.

The ideal person will have a strong interest in mental health and should enjoy working with people, particularly in group settings. This is an excellent opportunity for anyone interested in mental health issues to develop useful skills and experience (particularly in group work) and strengthen their CV without taking on a massive time commitment.

Anyone interested in the role will be able to observe a group meeting and meet the two current facilitators (who will remain in post until the end of the year to ensure a smooth handover).
