Debt, anxiety and mental health

A new initiative by the Money Advice Service and NHS Choices has been designed to help people whose debt worries are beginning to impact on their mental health.

The aim is to help people get to grips with their debts and money problems by helping them set out a clear budget for themselves and work out exactly how much money is coming in and where it is going out.  They will also be able to access independent advice on debt problems.

The new tool, which was launched as part of Mental Health Week, also directs people towards help with sleep problems, anxiety and handling common practical problems.
