New members are welcome. People who do not have lived experience of bipolar may only attend if they support someone who does experience the symptoms of bipolar to attend.

DRIVE Coordinators are mobile. For this reason it's best to contact them by email, phone, text, mail or using their social media platforms. DRIVE's email address is hello@drivedirection.org.nz.
