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 two research studies:

◾ 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.

The team are  holding  an event with interesting presentations and discussions about the results and future of REACT on the  9th July 2019.  Details below.

To find resources related to the REACT and IMPART studies please click on the 'REACT trial resources' or 'IMPART resources' menus on this page.

REACT Update

We are currently using the feedback from the REACT trial and IMPART study to update the content and hopefully improve the look and feel of the site.

Whilst we do this the REACT site will not be available. We are also exploring the options for an NHS Trust to become the clinical host for REACT so that we can continue to offer the REACT forum and direct messaging. If you are from an NHS trust and think this is something that may fit with how you support relatives please do get in touch….

If a clinical host is not found we will make the psychoeducation modules and resource directory available as soon as possible, but without the forum or direct messaging.

If you would like us to email you when REACT is made available again please let us know here, (
