New COVID-19 e-learning resources

There are two new e-learning resources on the MindEd Coronavirus Staff Resilience Hub.

The Hub, which was created last April in response to the pandemic, features tips and advice for frontline staff to help them better support each other across all services through these difficult times. Existing resources cover topics such as helping each other, end of life, stress and fear.

Phase 2 of the Hub now includes the following two new resources aimed at staff supporting children and young people in these challenging times:

  • Stress and Trauma – this session explores the psychology of stress and trauma and what to do about it in children and young people. It offers advice to all professionals involved with caring for children and young people, including teachers and education staff.
  • Loss and Bereavement – this session provides learners with advice and tips to help a child or young person who has lost a loved one during the pandemic or has faced loss in other forms, such as a loss of relationships through lack of play activities and feeling isolated from friends.

The new and existing resources can be found by visiting the Coronavirus Staff Resilience Hub.

MindEd is a free educational resource for mental health support.

The variety of free resources aims to provide adults, across professions and organisations and including parents and carers, with the knowledge to support wellbeing, the understanding to identify young and older people at risk of a mental health condition and the confidence to act on their concern and, if needed, signpost to services that can help.
