Mental Health UK joins Money Advice Trust’s National Debtline Partnership

With record numbers of people are seeking support from our Mental Health & Money Advice service, the cost-of-living crisis is clearly taking its toll on financial and mental health across the United Kingdom. This makes the need for financial and debt advice more important than ever. 

Mental Health UK are thrilled to announce that our Mental Health & Money Advice service is joining the Money Advice Trust’s National Debtline Partnership, providing a telephone casework service to National Debtline clients for the first time.


The National Debtline will offer free, independent and confidential advice by phone, webchat, and online, including improved digital tools to support the full debt advice journey with adviser support throughout. These enhancements will be rolled out over the next three years. 

The Money Advice Trust shared that two in three National Debtline callers (66%) have had to forego buying essential items in the last 6 months – up from 49% a year ago – with 62% being concerned they will be unable to pay their energy bills in the next 6 months, up from 47% last year.  

“With the cost-of-living crisis continuing to bite, it has never been more important to help people tackle their debts and manage money with confidence.”

– Joanna Elson CBE, Chief Executive of the Money Advice Trust

"More people are experiencing money problems and finding this is affecting their mental health. Partnering with National Debtline means we are able to support even more people with their financial and emotional wellbeing."

– Laura Peters, Head of Mental Health and Money Advice
