Who we are
Reliance on information and use of the website
Our website is maintained for your personal use and viewing. It is funded by NHS Leeds CCG to promote positive self-help and self-care and provide access to up-to-date information about support available to adults in Leeds.
MindWell is a website and not a clinical service. We don’t publish advice on www.mindwell-leeds.org.uk and the website is not designed to diagnose emotional or mental health conditions. You should get professional or specialist advice before doing anything on the basis of the content. We are unable to give advice or support to individuals via social media or email. If you’re looking for emotional or crisis support in Leeds please go to www.mindwell-leeds.org.uk/help. The website is an information providing service. We do not manage, endorse or recommend any of the mental health, wellbeing or practical support services featured on the website. We also reserve the right not to include or promote any organisations or activities at our discretion.
Our website is provided on an ‘as is’ basis and all information, commentary and other materials posted on our website are intended for general information purposes only. We therefore disclaim all liability and responsibility arising as a result of any bugs or viruses or any reliance placed on such information, commentary or other materials contained on our website by any visitor to our website, or by anyone who may be informed of any of its content.
Accessing our website
Access to our website is permitted on a temporary basis, and we reserve the right to withdraw or amend the service we provide on our website without notice. We will not be liable if for any reason our website is unavailable at any time or for any period.
Intellectual property rights
The material on this site is subject to copyright protection of Volition on behalf of NHS Leeds Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) unless otherwise indicated. It is provided for personal or professional use for people in Leeds. Those works are protected by copyright and trademark laws and treaties around the world. All such rights are reserved.
The branding, logo, images, graphics and icons within the MindWell website are the proprietary marks of Thrive By Design on behalf of NHS Leeds CCG. Copying and using our branding, logo or design features is not permitted without the prior approval of the copyright owner. Authorisation to reproduce any material on this site that is identified as being the copyright of a third party must be obtained from the copyright holders.
You shall not copy, adapt, exploit or otherwise use the content on our website in any way, save for the downloading and temporary storage of one or more of these pages for the purpose of viewing on a personal computer or terminal, or drawing the attention of others to material posted on our website.
Where any of the items on this site are being republished or copied to others, the source of the material must be clearly identified and the copyright status acknowledged. Any material must be shared accurately and not used in a misleading context.
Linking to and from our website
If you choose to use links displayed on our website, which link to third party websites, then you will leave our website (whether or not you realise that you are leaving). Links on our website are provided for your information only and we have no control over the contents of those third party websites or resources. We are not responsible in any way for the material on any other website that you enter.
We do not allow other websites to charge their website users to click on a link to any page on www.mindwell-leeds.org.uk. We also do not allow other websites to say that their website is associate with or endorsed by www.mindwell-leeds.org.uk.
A link does not imply the endorsement of a site. Likewise, not linking to a particular site does not imply lack of endorsement. We therefore do not make any representation – and to the fullest extent permitted by law do not accept any liability – in respect of the content, products or services available from such other websites, or the business of such third parties. Any dealings with advertisers and merchants accessed using the MindWell website shall be entirely at your own risk. To the fullest extent permitted by law, you agree to release us from all liability arising from any claims or disputes that may come from using these websites. You should read all terms and conditions, privacy policies and end user licences that relate to these websites before you use them.
We welcome and encourage users to establish hypertext links to the MindWell website. However, we do not permit our pages to be loaded into frames on another site. The pages must load into the user’s entire window.
Whilst we try to ensure that all information on our website is accurate, no guarantees, representations or warranties are given that the content on our website is accurate, complete, up-to-date or error free. Use of our website is at your own risk.
To the fullest extent permitted by law, we expressly exclude:
- all conditions, warranties and other terms which might otherwise be implied by statute, common law or the law of equity;
- any liability for any direct, indirect or consequential loss or damage incurred by any user in connection with our website or in connection with the access, use, inability to use, or results of the use of our website, any websites linked to it and any materials posted on it, including, without limitation, liability for:

- wasted management or office time
- loss or damage caused to any equipment or software
- any other loss or damage of any kind, however arising and whether caused by a wrongful act or infringement of a right (including negligence), breach of contract or otherwise, even if foreseeable.
This does not affect our liability for death or personal injury arising from our negligence, nor our liability for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation, or any other liability which cannot be excluded or limited under applicable law.

Privacy and cookies
For the convenience of our non-English speaking visitors, MindWell uses Google Translate to provide language translations of its content. Google Translate is an automated translation software that cannot convey all of the nuances and meaning in languages that a human translator would. MindWell has no direct control over the translated content as it appears when using the tool. Therefore, the Google Translate tool is provided for informational purposes only. Translations cannot be guaranteed as exact or without incorrect or inappropriate language. In all contexts, the English content, as directly provided and approved by MindWell, is the official version.
MindWell uses Google Translate through the free GTranslate module for WordPress. No personal information is collected or stored through the use of this service. Visitors to our site may use similar tools for translation needs, such as browser add-ins. Any individuals or parties that use MindWell content in translated form, whether by Google Translate or by any other translation services, do so at their own risk. MindWell is not responsible for any damages or issues arising from translated content not officially provided and approved by MindWell.
