The MindEd website, launched on
25 March 2014, is a free e-learning resource to help adults to
identify and understand children and young people with mental
It is aimed at everyone with a duty of care for children and
young people, whether this be through their work or outside it in a
voluntary or charitable capacity. This could be as a counsellor,
teacher or police officer, an athletics or football coach, or
through involvement with the Scouts or Brownies. MindEd has
something for everyone.
How does it work?
MindEd offers short (no more than 20-30 minutes) online learning
sessions to help adults identify mental health problems (looking at
how problems manifest themselves through particular feelings or
behaviours, for example) and demonstrate what action to take in the
best interests of the child or young person.
These sessions can be completed as a ‘one off’. Alternatively,
visitors can sign up as MindEd members and complete several
sessions which they can record on their personal page and print as
a certificate for their learning record.
At its heart, MindEd is about providing practical knowledge that
gives adults confidence to identify a mental health issue and act
swiftly, meaning better outcomes for the child or young person
