Money and mental health

Everything from making decisions about the future to how much you're spending weekly and monthly can be affected. It’s a good idea to think about your money in tandem with your mental health.

We support the government’s #YouAreNotAlone campaign, providing help to anyone affected by domestic abuse.

If you, or someone else, may be suffering from domestic abuse, and even if it’s not possible to talk, you’ll find many ways to get help on the government’s domestic abuse guidance page.

You can also download our financial abuse support guide for help safeguarding yourself and others.
