Mental Magazine Accessibility Document

This accessibility statement applies to the website Mental Magazine, accessed at www.mentalmagazine.co.uk.

  • Change the screen colours to the following:
    • Light mode.
    • Dark Mode.

    • Negative Contrast Mode.
    • Greyscale

  • Consistent site wide access to features.

We are aware parts of this website are not fully accessible:

  • Alternative text does not always show instead of images.
  • Headings are not present on every page.
  • Forms may be difficult to use.

Technical information about this website’s accessibility

Mental Magazine is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

Compliance status

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the following:

  • Headings issues.
  • Alternative text problems.
  • Problems with Forms.

Disproportionate burden

Some aspects of the website are not possible to be made accessible:

  1. Forms on the website may be hard to navigate using a keyboard. Our forms are built with third-party software and do not have full control over its settings.

We believe that doing so now would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the accessibility regulations. We will make another assessment when the supplier contract is up for renewal, likely to be in 2022.

Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

Some of our PDFs on our website are essential to our service. However, we have made this accessible on the website itself as well as an option PDF, for those who can access it.

What we are doing to improve accessibility

At Mental Magazine, we aim to keep an eye on the latest accessibility technology and features we can bring to the site. Currently, we are aiming to ensure every single image has alternative text and allow for greater screen customisation by the user. We aim to have this in place by the end of 2021.
