It takes a deep breath to embark on MindEd e‐learning as it can be time‐consuming and not always straightforward to navigate. Having said that, one does get used to the site the more one uses it. It took me just under an hour to undertake Suicide and Self‐Harm Prevention, Skills for Schools and it was well worth doing so. One in eight children and young people aged between five and 19 surveyed in England in 2017 had a mental disorder, an increase from one in ten in the last published research in 2004 (NHS Digital, 2018). Given that concerns about children and young people's mental health, especially self‐harm, are much more out in the open and part of a current dialogue, access to the quality, evidence‐based learning that MindEd provides is relevant and timely.
