Where

This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.

What is missing when 11% of bipolar community takes their own lives? Work with us to renew life purpose & restore HOPE to our most vulnerable & socially isolated.

About

Bipolar affects 6.1 million adults in US. Over 11% die by suicide.
Hope Xchange is dedicated to changing that. Join us as we help with hope.

We are seeking mentors for our Bipolar to Bipolar (B2B) and Bipolar Family to Bipolar Family (BF2BF) free and confidential mentoring programs wherein "balanced" bipolars virtually mentor those who aren't there yet but, with a mentor, will get there; or who mentor someone who loves someone who is bipolar but doesn't understand or know how to help.

Talking to someone who has walked in your shoes can be very comforting and helpful if you are struggling to cope with a bipolar diagnosis and to hold onto hope.

We know. We've been there. Our goal is to bring back light, laughter and love into our mentees' lives, something we all deserve.

Mentors are assigned to mentees based on age group and backgrounds (read stories) and typically talk (read listen) to assigned mentees once a week. Depending on the person and your own preferences and availability, some mentees also like to reach out via email and our younger mentees, via text.
