MindEd e-portal


The MindEd website is a free e-learning resource to help adults to identify and understand children and young people with mental health issues.

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 involved.
