i-act practitioners and managers do not only improve the quality of people’s lives, they also save lives.

i-act is an evidence-based course which is systematically reviewed every three years.

i-act is an independently accredited course with certified CPD points.

i-act comes with a 168-page, evidence-based course manual, toolkit and resource pack.

i-act participants also gain access to online i-act resources.

i-act comes with over 50 practical step-by-step tools and over 95 organisations to refer on to.

i-act was developed in the UK, has a UK evidence-base, and can be delivered anywhere in the UK and internationally.

i-act offers a ‘first-response’ approach to supporting someone in distress, it’s also maintains a pro-active approach to improving wellbeing in order to help build resilience and keep people well – hence i-act rather than re-act.

i-act offers specialist mental health training for executives, senior managers and line managers, as well as a general awareness course for employees/front-line workers.

From our trainer, Lisa:

"My name is Lisa and i'm the Training Coordinator at Newport Mind and Accredited i-act instructor

As the Training Coordinator at Newport Mind, I am passionate about tackling the stigma around mental illnesses. I am a highly experienced facilitator, learning designer and trainer and an accredited i-act instructor, delivering the i-act training across the UK.

Having spend twenty years in the education sector, I has spent the last four years with the mental health charity Newport Mind as a wellbeing worker, family resilience worker and training coordinator. I works with many different organisations to help them build mentally healthy workplaces and promote a better understanding of workplace wellbeing.

I am passionate about encouraging conversations around mental health and well-being and equipping people with the tools and understanding to be able to offer further support and signposting.

Using my own lived experience has helped me to engage organisations and individuals with conversations about mental health and wellbeing which they may have previously found challenging to have."
