The covid-19 crisis has left many people worried about their finances. We know that that the stress of money worries will have a significant bearing on some people’s mental health, and poor mental health can be associated with unwise financial behaviours or difficulty in navigating how to best manage debts.
Thanks to funding from Lloyds Banking Group we are now able to sustain this vital service during a time of high worry to ensure that those who need it can access support for their mental health and money.
So far, the Mental Health and Money Advice service has made clients over £5 million better off.
