MindEd provides free educational resources containing advice, guidance and information on managing a wide range of mental health issues in children and young people.

Suitable for all adults working with infants, children or teenagers; all the information provided is quality assured by experts, useful, and easy to understand.

MindEd aims to give adults who work with young people:


  • the knowledge to support their wellbeing
  • the understanding to identify a child at risk of a mental health condition
  • the confidence to act on their concern and, if needed, signpost to services that can help

A Cross-Professional Resource

MindEd is cross-professional, and can be used by teachers, health professionals, police and judiciary staff, social workers, youth service volunteers, school counsellors among others to support their professional development.

There are also specific resources to support CAMHS and CYP IAPT learners and those on counselling courses. All registered learners can access a learning path tailored to their needs.

There are 300 different e-learning topics, pitched at varying levels of details and complexity. The resources are designed to support early intervention and help adults develop the skills to enable young people to develop healthy young minds.

Prevention and Early Intervention

We all know working with children and young people can be complicated. When problems arise, adults need the information and confidence to act swiftly and make the right decisions for those in their care. The evidence shows that when mental health problems are identified early, outcomes are improved. This is particularly true when the child or young person is vulnerable, in care, or in crisis.

MindEd provides professionals in social care with the skills to help identify a child or young person with a mental health condition.  It promotes the provision of early support and, it is hoped, a reduction in the time taken for referrals.

Over 19,000 workers already use MindEd. Visit MindEd to register today and access this free resource.
