The YEP’s #SpeakYourMind campaign is calling on people to get talking about mental health problems and help tackle the continuing stigma surrounding the issue.

But we can only make a difference with the support of Leeds’s citizens, businesses, communities at large and – most important of all – you, our readers.

Here are four ways you can help us to make a real change:

1. Pledge your support – Let everyone know you’re backing the campaign by using the hashtag #SpeakYourMind on social media.

2. Share your story – Email joseph.keith@jpress.co.uk to tell us about your experiences and why you think it’s time to #Speakyourmind.

3. Donate to The Leeds Fund – This year Leeds Community Foundation’s The Leeds Fund is focusing on mental health projects in our city. Click here to make a donation.

4. Become a Mindful Employer – Sign your businesses or organisation up to the Mindful Employer Leeds initiative so that staff can speak out about their mental health issues without prejudice.
