The money and mental health manifesto 2019

6 November 2019

To build a fairer, kinder and healthier society, breaking the link between mental health problems and financial difficulty should be a top priority for us all. This manifesto sets out five ways the next government can tackle these issues, and boost the mental and financial wellbeing of people across the country.

We urge all political parties to commit to taking action on the following five areas:

1. Tackle the link between suicide and financial difficulty

2. Make money advice available as part of NHS care

3. Help people with mental health problems to stay in work — and support those who are too unwell to do so

4. Stop firms profiting from consumers’ poor mental health

5. Make it easier and safer for carers to support loved ones with money management
