A new group has been set up in Brighouse to support people with bipolar disorder.

Previously known as clinical depression, bipolar affects one person in a hundred and is characterised by periods of elevated mood and periods of depression.

Bipolar affects one person in a hundred and famous sufferers include Stephen Fry.

The group, under the guidance of the Southwest Partnership of the NHS and with funding from a national lottery grant, hopes to support those with the condition.

The first meeting of the group will be on Monday, November 3 at 10.30am at the Oddfellows Hall, Industrial Street on Bradford Road.

The meeting is open to family members, carers or anyone else who might be interested.

You can turn up to the meeting or for further details and information, contact David Craven on 01484 711619 or emailflossnboss@sky.com.
