Debt can worsen people's mental health and people with mental health problems are almost three times as likely to be in debt, according to a report by mental health charity Mind.

Over 90 per cent of people with problem debt said it had worsened their mental health. Seventy per cent said they often ran out of money and 87 per cent relied on credit to pay for food and everyday bills.
