The evidence-based i-act for positive mental health and WELLbeing model and tools were first developed in 2016 and have since been adopted by many organisations across the UK. The i-act model and tool have been designed by leading chartered psychologists and mental health professionals in the field; they are evidence-based courses which have been approved by The Wellbeing Community. i-act is systematically reviewed every 3 years and can be delivered anywhere in the UK.
The i-act model and tools
The i-act model maintains a focus on common mental health issues, such as anxiety and depression, and also addresses how we might improve wellbeing in order to build resilience. The i-act model gives practical guidance and tools for how we might improve our own mental health and wellbeing and support others who may have a mental health or wellbeing issue. It informs participants as to what they need to know and offers tools for addressing and improving mental health and wellbeing in the workplace.
