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.

Pushing Your Limits...Without Falling Off the Deep End

(The following topic was posted by Josh for a past meetup.) "Heya all, I hope you're doing well. This week I thought we'd talk about those times when we need to push ourselves to our limits due to current life circumstances.....but not push ourselves over the edge in the process. Come on down to the Empire Cafe and chat with us about it! Josh" _______________________________________________________________________________________ We sit down and discuss whatever we wish. This might sound simple, but the experience is often amazing. During the evening, people sometimes move to other places at the table. This is encouraged. It's therefore possible to talk to many people. Sometimes this leads to close friendships. 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 a few days before the meeting. If your plans change, please cancel your RSVP.
