Mental health issues will affect one in four during their lifetimes, yet few of us have the tools or knowledge to analyse our own mental wellbeing and stigma still prevents many from seeking help.

On Friday the Recorder launches a major mental health awareness campaign with charity Havering Mind, which will run throughout 2016.

Through Mind Your Mental Health, we aim to break down the stigma that persists and share advice for analysing and improving the wellbeing of our community.

Havering Mind helps more than 500 people each year and is looking to extend its reach by educating and supporting us all to help ourselves.

Improving the borough’s mental health is not something we can do alone.

We need Recorder readers to support us by sharing their stories and pledging to help break down stigma by supporting others, whether they be family members, neighbours or colleagues.

To find out more, including how you can get involved see Friday’s Recorder.
