Money and Mental Health Advice Service

Mental health problems are often linked to money worries and addressing them can alleviate stress and anxiety.

How can we help?
Our team of advisers have years of experience between them and can help you to accurately prepare a financial statement. Understanding your income and outgoings as well as which debts you have and whether they are priority or non-priority debts is the first step.
There are different ways of managing debt, from debt relief orders to payment plans and individual voluntary orders. We can help you to decide which one is best for you and your situation. We can also look at ways to increase your income, checking your eligibility for grants and benefits and helping you to apply. See below for a case study of a client we helped recently. You can also find more advice on the Citizens Advice website www.citizensadvice.org.uk/debt-and-money/
