i-act Principles 

  • i-act is an evidence-based approach which is designed by leading chartered psychologists and academics in the field, and is systematically reviewed every three years.

  • Registration as an i-act manager/practitioner is valid for three years.

 

  • i-act aims to reduce the stigma around mental health and wellbeing issues, and promote more positive messages.

 

  • i-act offers a basic first-response approach along with a proactive focus upon improving wellbeing to help build resilience.

 

  • i-act practitioners and managers may identify signs of distress, but don’t diagnose.

 

  • As the lay person, it’s not our role to ‘treat’ someone’s mental health or wellbeing issues.

  • i-act practitioners and managers may offer support and signposting, but know their limitations

 

  • i-act practitioners and managers ensure their own safety first. Don’t put yourself at risk either physically or regarding your own mental health and wellbeing.

 

  • Only use the i-act tools and techniques when you feel comfortable and confident to do so; however, don’t walk on by, if you’re unsure seek additional help and support.

  • Think about your own mental health and wellbeing, any support you might access and how you might actively improve your own wellbeing.

 

  • Don’t be alone – if you are unsure, just ask, seek professional help and support. The i-act course manual, toolkit and resource pack details over 95 agencies and organisations who are there to  support you. 

  • i-act supports the theory that actively improving our wellbeing can help to build our resilience.
