This site was created for young people, carers, and professionals to pool together lots of helpful resources from across the internet that are available to help support your mental health and well-being. Contains Apps, websites, videos and specific advice about Coronavirus.


This is for you if you volunteer, work or are studying to work with infants, children or teenagers. 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.

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

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
