With three-quarters of adult mental disorders in evidence by the age of 21, effective early intervention can be essential in preventing the development of ill health and disability. MindEd provides accessible, engaging online training in emotional and behavioural ‘first aid’ and essential therapeutic skills for all those involved in the mental wellbeing and care of children and young people in the UK. The education and knowledge provided is instrumental in breaking down stigma and maximising the life chances for all children and young people.
The MindEd site provides a single source of e-learning material covering the breadth of children and young people’s mental health, freely accessible through an open learning management system.
The e-learning content is written to be suitable for all types of users, from healthcare and non-healthcare workforces, such as teachers or GPs, through to the general public.
