What is the study about?

Are you currently supporting a family member living with dementia? Are you experiencing worries or distress and interested in receiving online support? iACT4CARERS is an online programme tailored for family carers of people with dementia. This programme is based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. This new therapy is not about accepting the diagnosis or situations you are currently facing. This therapy helps people to learn how to live with difficult or distressing thoughts and feelings, while still trying to do things that matter to them or being the type of person they want to be.


Who can take part?

Aged 18 years and over, caring for a family member diagnosed with dementia, presenting anxiety symptoms, help-seeking, having access to internet. 


What is involved?

A large trial testing if internet-delivered self-help Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for family carers of people with dementia (iACT4CARERS) is helpful in improving psychological well-being.
iACT4CARERS focuses on helping people to manage difficult or troubling thoughts and feelings, while still trying to do activities that really matter to them.
