The MindEd programme first went live in 2014. Since then over 35,000 users have registered and over 100,000 sessions have been completed. With the completion of stages 1 and 2 the site now contains over 330 e-learning sessions.
MindEd is broken into 4, easy to navigate, segments (Universal (Core) Content, Counselling, Healthy School Child, and Specialist and Targeted CAMHS) which cover a huge range of topics.
In addition to this content aimed at professionals and volunteers, in April 2016 MindEd launched MindEd for Families. These open access, mobile friendly, topics are aimed at parents and carers who are concerned about, or interested in, the emotional health and wellbeing of their children. With extensive use of engaging images and video content, MindEd for Families provides bite sized chunks of excellent advice and is supported on all mobile devices.
Another new resource in 2016 is the MindEd Digital Risk Resources. These pages, prepared by young people for adults, provide up to date advice, and extensive links to detailed resources, on a range of topics relating to teenage digital lives, including e-safety, self-esteem, bullying and pornography.
