Poverty premium inquiry
30 April 2018
Mental health problems do not discriminate on the basis of income, and people across the income spectrum are affected. However experiencing a mental health problem does make it less likely that a person will be in work, increase the risk that a person will experience income shocks, and make it harder to manage money in other ways. In this consultation response, we aim to help the APPG understand the links between the poverty premium and broader debates around consumers in vulnerable circumstances.
