There is a strong correlation between financial and emotional well-being. Financial difficulty is often accompanied by anxiety and even shame. Debt has also been proven to worsen the condition of individuals already suffering from mental health issues. Symptoms of anxiety and depression can be brought on and/or worsened due to feelings of pessimism about the future, fear of the consequences of going into debt, marital and familial conflicts stemming from financial issues, and the prospect of giving up control of one’s financial affairs. Existing mental health problems can also make it more difficult for individuals to hold down jobs and move up the career ladder, stay motivated to keep track of finances, and can impair wise financial decision making.
