MindEd provides free mental health e-learning for anyone who works or volunteers with children, teenagers or young people. The MindEd programme includes free online CAMHS training, counselling courses and mental health resources for teachers and health professionals.

This session explains bladder and bowel problems such as bedwetting and incontinence in children and young people. It covers wetting in school in children and highlights the impact continence problems can have on both the child and family as well as wider community.

  • The management of bedwetting includes the use of medication and enuresis alarms.
  • The management of daytime wetting includes assessments, bladder training programmes and medication.
  • The principles of support, which improve longer term outcomes, include information, privacy, non-judgemental behavioural practice and rewards for achievement.
  • The multi-disciplinary team is needed for more complicated cases or where maltreatment is suspected.
