MALG member the Money Advice Trust has worked in partnership with the Money and Mental Health Policy Institute to create a debt and mental health fact sheet for its National Debtline and Business Debtline money advice services.
The fact sheet explains how debt and mental health can affect each other, and looks at various approaches consumers/businesses can take to deal with their debts. It can be used to:
consider how debt and mental health can impact on each other;
decide whether to let your creditors know that you are experiencing mental health issues;
understand that a range of options may be available for dealing with your debts; and
understand when the Debt and Mental Health Evidence Form (DMHEF) can be used to tell your creditors how your mental health is affecting the way you manage your money and debts.
