Relatives Education and Coping Toolkit Resources

Welcome to REACT

Welcome to REACT

REACT is the Relatives Education And Coping Toolkit, an online self-help package or toolkit for relatives and friends of people with mental health problems associated with psychosis or bipolar. It was put together by a team of people with expertise in this area, including clinicians, researchers and relatives of people with psychosis or bipolar.

Please watch the animation below to find out more about REACT.

We have recently completed three projects

  • A clinical trial to test whether REACT is effective in reducing distress in relatives and increasing their wellbeing.

  • An implementation study to explore what key factors influence the implementation of REACT in NHS early Intervention Services.

  • A project exploring what is required to transition REACT from research to service.

To find resources related to the REACT and IMPART studies please click on the ‘REACT Trial Resources’ or ‘IMPART Resources’ menus at the top of the page. We will update this website soon with resources related to the project exploring the transition of REACT.

REACT Update

We have used the feedback got the REACT Trial and IMPART study to update the content and improve the look and feel of the site.

The new REACT site is now available at and includes the psychoeducation modules and the resource directory.

We are also exploring the options for an NHS Trust to become the clinical host for REACT so that we can offer the REACT forum and direct messaging. If you think this is something that may fit with how you support relatives please do get in touch.

For any questions about the REACT site or opportunity to be a clinical host please contact Fiona Lobban (details below).
