Music for BipolarUK

bipolar artworkStudents from Manchester University and RNCM are putting on a varied classical music concert at Church to support BipolarUK.

Bipolar disorder used to be called ‘manic depression’. About 1 in every 100 of adults have bipolar disorder at some stage in their lives. As the older name suggests, someone with bipolar disorder will have severe mood swings. These usually last several weeks or months and are far beyond what most of us experience.

Shannon, who is organising the concert writes:

13238933_800744843393829_5766187693656664303_nI have a very personal reason for wanting to raise money for this amazing charity as I lost my uncle at the end of last year to Bipolar.

Bipolar UK does such an important job supporting both individuals and families affected by Bipolar. As a greatly misunderstood and complex illness, people suffering can feel extremely alone and Bipolar UK provides a lot of support and reassurance, ranging from local support groups to one-to-one phone calls. As well as this, Bipolar UK sets up and organises support groups for suffers under the age of 26.

Whilst support for suffers of Bipolar is available, the charity also offers help and advice for the families and friends of those suffering, advising them on how they can support their loved ones who are suffering.

Bipolar UK supports more than 70,000 individuals and families every year, and as you can imagine, this takes a huge amount of funding. It is therefore so important to do all the fundraising possible to make sure this life-saving charity can continue its vital work.

Bipolar image 2If you can come and support this concert, it will be appreciated so greatly, not only by the performers who are playing, but by people who are receiving the help they need as a result of your donation.

The Concert is at St Chrysostom’s Church On Saturday May 28th at 7.30pm at Church.

Tickets £5, or £3 students / concessions. Everyone is very welcome.
