The Royal College of Paedeatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) have developed a new online resource for parents and carers of teenagers struggling with mental health issues.

MindEd for families has been co-written by parents with a lived experience of child and teen mental health issues and the best clinical experts. The resources have been accredited by the Information Standard as reliable online health advice. They offer free, completely open access, online education in over 300 topics. The e-learning included in MindEd for Families is applicable to a wide range of learners across the health, social care, education, criminal justice and community settings.

It aims to provide simple, clear guidance on children and young people's mental health, wellbeing and development to any adult working with children, young people and families, to help them support the development of young healthy minds.
