MindEd is a free educational resource on children and young people's mental health for all adults working with them. It is run by NHS England.

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. 

MindEd is suitable for all adults working with, or caring for, infants, children or teenagers; all the information provided is quality assured by experts, useful, and easy to understand. We aim to give adults who care for, or 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

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.

For more information about MindED, and how we can help you, please view our website and contact us.

For Professionals and Volunteers

This is for you if you volunteer, work or are studying to work with infants, children, teenagers or adults. MindEd has e-learning applicable across the health, social care, education, criminal justice and community settings. It is aimed at anyone from beginner through to specialist.

The MindEd Coronavirus Staff Resilience Hub provides support for frontline staff working through the Covid-19 pandemic to help manage their mental health and wellbeing. It has been created alongside NHS Health Education England and in partnership with NHS England-Improvement, supported by Skills for Care.

For Education: Wellbeing for Education Return

The Wellbeing for Education Return programme is a joint initiative from the Department for Education, Department of Health and Social Care, Health Education England, NHS England and Public Health England. The programme supports staff working in schools and colleges to respond to the additional pressures some young people may be feeling as a direct result of the Covid-19 pandemic, as well as to any emotional response they or their teachers may be experiencing.

Content for this programme has been developed by MindEd with input from mental health and education experts. This can be found within MindEd Education.

It is not compulsory, but the best way to use MindEd is by creating a learning account. If you are already a registered MindEd user, or you want to sign up for a free account you can do so here.
