Do you work with relatives of people with psychosis or bipolar disorder?
Do you think they would benefit from support and information in the form of an online toolkit?
Do you think they would like to take part in on online research study?
REACT (Relatives Education And Coping Toolkit) is an online peer-supported toolkit for relatives of people with psychosis or bipolar disorder which contains lots of information to help relatives, ideas of strategies to manage common problems, and stories from other relatives about their experiences.
The aim of this study is to test the effectiveness of REACT for reducing relatives’ distress and explore the costs involved in delivering this intervention.
What does this study involve?
Participants will be asked some questions online about their experiences as a relative of someone with psychosis or bipolar disorder. They will be randomly allocated by computer to receive either the REACT online intervention including access to a Resource Directory plus any treatment they might currently be having OR the Resource Directory plus any treatment they might currently be having. After 12 and 24 weeks participants will be asked the same questions online about their experiences as a relative of someone with psychosis or bipolar disorder.
Who is eligible?
Participants must be aged 16 years old or over, have access to the internet, and be able to understand written and verbal English (we don’t currently have translated versions of the site available). Participants must not be currently taking part in another research study evaluating an intervention for relatives.
