“The government has announced new plans for the future of mental health care, including more action than ever before to tackle the link between money and mental health problems. We’re really pleased to see that Money and Mental Health research, based on the experiences of Research Community members, has influenced these plans in a number of ways.
One particular example – the government has announced new training for employment advisors who work in NHS talking therapy services, so that they can help people who are receiving treatment to get support with money problems. We have been calling for this change for some time, as Research Community members have told us that talking therapy is less effective if they are struggling with money problems at the time.”
