If we have been in a lease for 8 months now and are having issues with mold in the home, can we get out of our lease?

Question Details: I have spoken to the landlord about this, have pics to prove it, text messages to him to prove it, etc. Can we get out of the 4 months we have left on this lease agreement and get our deposit back? Also, if we have to stay here for time being, is it true I can withhold rent payments till the issues is taken care of? Our family has been in and out of the doctors office quite frequently since moving here and we are concerned for our health as well as our 3 children.
