Financial challenges impact on mental health as the cost of living crisis deepens. However, there is practical advice, and help available.
It’s shocking to think that we’re living at a time where the cost of living has increased more in 2022 than it has in the past 40 years. That’s a huge amount.
As a community, we have all seen how over the past year, fuel and energy prices have soared, on top of increased rents and mortage rate rises and spiralling food prices.
These financial challenges are shown to be having a serious impact on stress levels amongst families, as some are forced into working longer hours to pay the bills, or having to make serious choices between buying food or heating the house.
The impact the cost of living crisis is having on the nation should not be overlooked
