About this meeting
These meetings are specifically for individuals who are suffering from Bipolar Disorder. While many Bipolar sufferers deal with mania or hypomanic episodes, most experience depression regularly. The combination can be quite difficult. In these meetings, you will have the opportunity to compare notes with others and get encouragement and ideas that you can use.

About the host
Struggling? I’ve been there! I am Lori and have lived with Bi-Polar II, anxiety and panic attacks, depression and PTSD from trauma and toxic relationships most of my adult life. I also have members of my inner circle that also live with various life challenges. I live on both sides of the mental health journey. I received my certification from UNC-Chapel Hill in Peer Support in 2014. However, I have been listening to others and sharing my own experiences most of my life. I have rebuilt my life several times and explored the question of “who am I” and “why am and I here” multiple times through life. I try to live by the motto of "Living Life Forward"
Motivation for help
I am a certified HeyPeers facilitator and Peer Support saved my life. I have been successful in the recovery process and want to help others experiencing similar situations through understanding, respect, and empowerment. I offer one on one coaching and support. Contact me directly to schedule one on one sessions.

Thank you! I think this was the first time since I found this space in March that I've missed a week. Showed me what an important part of my recovery journey it's become. What you do is a blessing in my life. Thank you!

Lori is such a great facilitator and I enjoy seeing her in groups! She offers great insight and experience. Hoping these groups pick up and catch on soon, I love them and don’t want to see them go anywhere!

She is sympathetic and opens up a space for acceptance

Always a pleasure. $5.99 to start my day off on a positive note. I'll take it! She is especially good when I arrive in a bit of a manic state and can't control the rapid fire thoughts. She'll allow me to rant for a bit just to get it out of my system but then reel it in and bring me back to earth so that the other group members can participate. She does it in a very respectful way. Never makes you feel like your a burden to the meeting like other group leaders have done to me in the past. I suppose it could be that Lori has worked with me before and is familiar with my behavior patterns and how to manage them. A A A
