REACT MH Conversation Training
5 November 2020 @ 9:00 am – 10:15 am UTC
REACT MH® conversation training: Empowering you to support the mental health and wellbeing of our NHS people
What you will learn: This short remote live training session will enable you to identify people in your team or community who may be struggling with their mental health, initiate a supportive wellbeing conversation, confidently hold the conversation using active listening skills, and signpost them to appropriate support. You will gain new knowledge and have a chance to put this into practice during the session. The training is underpinned by psychologically sound principles and the REACTMH technique comprising of: Recognise, Engage, Actively listen, Check risk, and Talk about specific actions. The REACTMH technique is well-established and has been delivered for the past three years to thousands of people across public and private sector organisations.
Who is it for: All managers, supervisors and those with caring responsibilities for NHS people, in clinical and non-clinical NHS services, across all our NHS, health and care organisations – in particular those working in areas exposed to high risk of stress, burnout and disadvantaged groups during COVID-19.
Delivered virtually: Sessions last up to 1 hour 15 minutes and are run remotely using virtual platform technology (Zoom).
Who delivers it: NHS England and NHS Improvement are working in partnership with March on Stress who are experts in managing stress and wellbeing during crisis situations to deliver this training.

What happens after booking: You will be emailed a link to your chosen virtual session along with further joining instructions a couple of days before the session is due to be delivered. This will be sent to the email address that you used to sign up. Please remember to check your spam/junk email folders in case your Joining Instruction email has inadvertently gone in there.

Preparing your IT equipment: Please make sure that your IT equipment (e.g. computer, phone, tablet) has the required working software (Zoom) to run the session well in advance. If using an NHS computer, check with your IT team that Zoom is enabled on your device either as an app or as a browser plug in. You are also welcome to join from your own personal devices. We use Zoom as we need many breakout rooms to enable you to practice having REACT conversations and this is the only virtual platform that currently enables us to do this effectively for high numbers of participants.
