Royal College of Psychiatrists

In the mental health information section of our website you'll find readable, user-friendly and evidence-based information on mental health problems, treatments and other topics, written by psychiatrists with help from patients and carers.

For online training in emotional and behavioural ‘first aid’ and essential therapeutic skills, MindEd offers free, completely open access, online education with over 350 sessions. Our e-learning is applicable to a wide range of learners across the health, social care, education, criminal justice and community settings. The education and knowledge provided is instrumental in breaking down stigma and maximising the life chances for all children and young people.

In 2018 these resources were extended to include a programme of learning supporting the mental health of adults with a Learning Disability, aimed at the care workforce.

Advice for non-members before contacting us
What we do:

  • Set standards and promote excellence in psychiatry and mental healthcare.
  • Lead, represent and support psychiatrists.
  • Work with patients, carers and their psychiatrists. We provide online and printed information on mental health issues and signpost patients to further help.

What we don't do:

  • Take complaints against or discipline psychiatrists. Please visit the General Medical Council (GMC) website to make a complaint.
  • Provide a list of or recommend psychiatrists. But we do have a list of current members.
  • Offer consultations or personal advice – we do not have psychiatrists based in the College. Please see your GP in the first instance, who will be able to discuss this more with you.
