How do I use REACT?

The best way to get around the REACT website is to use the toolbar at the top of the screen. This provides easy links to all the different sections of REACT. Just click on the one you want. The different sections are all described in detail below. If you follow a link in the site and want to go back to where you were, then use your back browser button at the very top left of your screen. All external links will open in a new window so your REACT toolkit will remain open. If at any time you want to go back to this introduction section, just click on the REACT logo in the top left.


REACT is organised into sections called MODULES. You can work through the MODULES in the order they are presented, and there is some logic to this, but you are also welcome to explore the site and go to the bits you find most interesting or useful.

REACT includes lots of information about psychosis and bipolar disorder, and about the kinds of treatments available. There are lots of practical coping strategies suggested for you to try. We have included ways to access emotional support through REACT by hearing the stories of other relatives. The stories on the site are real stories, but to protect the privacy of the people telling them, some of them are retold by actors.

Resource Directory

The TOOLKIT may have all the information you need, but we have included lots of ideas of where else to look for further information in the RESOURCE DIRECTORY. This also includes a section explaining common jargon terms used throughout the TOOLKIT.

We have included lots of national organisations, and a map to show resources local to you.


We are always keen to get feedback (good and bad) about REACT so we can continue to improve it. If you want to give feedback at any time, just click on the FEEDBACK button and send us an email. We promise to listen and try to address it if we can.
