How could our pages be better?
Posted Friday 18 November 2011
We're here to make sure anyone with a mental health problem has somewhere to turn for information and support, both in "real life" and increasingly, online.
The information pages on our site provide the backbone of this online and we've worked hard to make sure they're good quality (we've got the information standard quality mark) and are written and reviewed by people living with mental health problems.
Up to now, we've designed them for print: for you to pick up a booklet or leaflet and read it from start to finish in what is often know as an E-Z or Z pattern.
What we haven't done is designed our information for you to read online, in chunks, when you need it.
We know that more and more people turn to the internet for health information, more people are seeking help for mental health problems and from your feedback we also know that our information can be hard to find.
The information on our website could be so much better - it could include video, audio, your stories and be interactive.
It could be written to more closely match the F pattern (the way people scan the written word online) and be broken down into smaller chunks.
We've got lots of ideas.
But we want to hear from you what you need and what you think. So please, let us know what you think in the comments below, take our quick survey.
