Debt advice provider PayPlan has released survey results during Mental Health Awareness Week 2017 which show that one in six debtors seeking their help experience depression because of debt.

A staggering 82% of PayPlan customers customers suffer from anxiety, 91% from stress and 62% from insomnia as a result of their debt problems, and the majority are isolated with less than one in five feeling able to admit their money problems.
