Poor mental health can make earning and managing money harder. And worrying about money can make your mental health worse. It can start to feel like a vicious cycle.

We can often feel embarrassed or overwhelmed when talking about money and mental health problems, but you are not alone. Let us tackle them both, together.

If you have a limited income it is important to check that you are on the correct benefits. If you have mental health needs that affect you on a day-to-day basis, you may be entitled to specific benefits, such as Personal Independence Payments.

You can do an online check to see which benefits you may be able to apply for.

There may be restrictions on the benefits you can apply for based on your status in the UK. Find out more about immigration rules here.
