Plusminus – living with bipolarity, offers contact with fellow sufferers in various ways, because it is nice to find recognition from others. This can be done through individual contact, but also in groups at regional and national level. Alongside the hotline and e-community, Plusminus has peer support groups across the Netherlands helping with recovery and the participants have very postive experience. Experiencing that you are not the only one with problems that are difficult to understand and explain can be very supportive. It also shows that solutions have often already been devised for many seemingly insurmountable difficulties like dealing with work, partner and family, money, friendship and rebuilding a network of social contacts.
