Financial Health…
Studies Show Your Financial Health Could Be a Good Indicator of Your Mental Health

  

“Your debt may cost you more than just interest. Research shows there’s a clear link between your financial health and your mental health, and your debt may serve as a tangible representation of your psychological state.”

“Approximately 35 percent of Americans have delinquent debt, according to a 2014 report published by the Urban Institute. Overdue debts average around $5,178 and usually include a mixture of credit card balances, medical bills and unpaid utilities.”

“And that’s just personal debt. Most small business owners also have some form of business debt. A 2012 Wells Fargo/Gallup Small Business Index poll found that 36 percent of business owners are uncomfortable with their company’s debt.”

  
Debt and Mental Health

“Approximately one in five U.S. adults experiences a mental illness each year according to the National Institute of Mental Health. And multiple studies report people with mental health problems are more likely to be in debt.”

“Researchers from the University of South Hampton examined 65 studies on debt and mental health. Their report, which was published in Clinical Psychology Review, found a correlation between mental illness and financial problems.”

“Researchers concluded the likelihood of having a mental health problem is three times higher among people who have debt. Depression, anxiety disorders and psychotic disorders were among the common mental illnesses people in debt experienced.”
