Why do we need a style guide?

MindWell provides a gateway or ‘portal’ for any adults in Leeds, including GPs and other professionals, to get quick, easy and direct access to up-to-date mental health information.

We (MindWell) are not one organisation, but a collection of services, sources of support, information and guidance from across Leeds. 

It’s important that we (and the resources that we bring together) are consistent in what we say and how we say it.  

We have created this guide to make sure we speak to our audience with one voice. Following these guidelines also helps us create content that’s accessible, inclusive and easier to read.

When writing for our audience, all content should follow these guidelines.
