Reproducing our information
Frequently asked questions (FAQs)
If you would like to make use of our online resources beyond reading them on the site, please read the answers to these frequently asked questions.
Can I copy, quote or adapt text from Mind's website?
Mind gives permission to quote up to 200 words from our information resources on a website or in a printed publication, excluding personal experience quotes.
Please ensure that you include the following acknowledgement:
© Mind. This information is published in full at mind.org.uk
When reproduced online please also include a link to the original material on Mind's website.
Any requests to reproduce content of more than 200 words should be directed to Johnny Bird and a permissions fee may apply.
Mind can also offer an e-licence for organisations wishing to host Mind's information e-booklets on their website or intranet. Please see our e-licencing web page.
Can I use text from Mind's publications in my work as a student?
You are welcome to use any of Mind's information in your essay or project, taking account of your own responsibilities to cite sources and give references.
Unfortunately Mind does not have the resources to assist students directly with essays or research projects.
Can I print booklets and PDFs from Mind's website?
For personal use - you can print as many copies as you like of the text of our information webpages or the pdf version of our booklets for your own personal use.
For professionals and organisations wishing to distribute our booklets (for example for a display, an event or a mail-out) - we ask that you buy our professionally printed A5 booklets from Mind Publications. We offer special packs for distribution through universities and workplaces. And we give discounts for bulk purchase. This income helps us continue to make our booklets available for free for the general public.
You may not re-sell copies of Mind's information products.
Can I display cover images from Mind's publications on web pages, or in any other publishable format?
We are generally happy for organisations to display cover images, but any organisation wishing to do this should email Johnny Bird to seek permission before uploading or printing the images.
Where cover images are displayed we would expect a referral to Mind's Publications service or a link to our website.
