The information, available to view on tablets and smartphones, includes guidance on what to do in a crisis, what to do if you are worried, how to manage on a day to day basis, how to support your child through their experience and where to turn for support.

Funded by the Department for Education, MindEd for Families is co-written by parents with a lived experience of child and teen mental health issues and the best clinical experts.

The resources are accredited by the Information Standard as reliable advice. The same MindEd Consortium has delivered these materials to a consistent high quality standard.
