MindEd has also created an Adult Eating Disorder Hub – a collection of existing evidence-based, trusted learning resources, for example, elearning, evidence-based guidelines, legislation, key-seminal texts and resources developed by the NHS, Royal Colleges, Mainstream professional bodies and charities.

MindEd is a free educational resource for mental health support. The variety of free resources aims to provide adults – across professions and organisations and including parents and carers – with the knowledge to support wellbeing, the understanding to identify young and older people at risk of a mental health condition and the confidence to act on their concern and, if needed, signpost to services that can help.
