Let's talk about our families
• ABOUT THIS EVENT Look for the table sign that says BPCC. If it is not too hot, we will sit in the patio area. _______________________________________________________________________________________ Preface: Our group's unplanned tradition is that we do not talk about the topic for the week's meeting. This is a great thing, because we always just talk about whatever we want. If we ever do talk about the topic, the meeting date does not matter. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . An Ongoing Topic: It's great that we are getting to know each other well. To further strengthen our friendships, we can talk to one another about our families, both our current ones and our childhoods. ( If someone prefers to not talk about their family, simply say so. ) . • ABOUT THE GROUP - Our meetings are completely informal. We just sit down at a table and discuss whatever we want. Members arrive and leave whenever they wish anytime between 6:30 and 9:00, sometimes 10:00. RSVPs are very helpful, but they are not required. People are interested in knowing who will attend. This affects their decision about attending. If you think you might attend, please try to RSVP several days before the meeting. If your plans change, please cancel your RSVP. It is now possible to quickly get to our group's main page by going to the address: bipolarchat.org. In other words, it immediately redirects to our Meetup.com page. This domain name will be used for other purposes, but it must not change the basic nature of our group. We meet face to face, not online.

What we're about

The Bipolar Chat and Coffee group was created for local bipolars to meet and chat about their respective experiences, however any person who has intimate bipolar contact on a regular basis or is just interested in the condition is more than welcome to attend. We also welcome those who have Depression, General Anxiety, Social Anxiety and OCD. Hopefully, through hearing the thoughts and stories of others, a certain sense of perspective and understanding about the disorder can be gained which is otherwise difficult to obtain. Posted topics are just suggestions, not an agenda. The bottom line: an open discussion on all aspects of bipolar disorder, and other mood disorders, between peers, great coffee, and some of the most interesting stories you've ever heard!

NOTE: This group meets EVERY Tuesday night at the Empire Cafe at 6:30 PM. Hence, members often do not RSVP. Rest assured there are almost always 4 to 16 people who show up for every meetup no matter how many members RSVP.

For some new members, it's a praiseworthy accomplishment to get out and go to a first meeting. The organizers are especially aware of this. We will help you to feel comfortable and welcome.
