About these pages

Many people don’t like discussing their finances with a bank.  However, having a professional organisation looking after your money is useful.

Personal finances and mental health often have a strong impact on each other. If you are struggling to keep control of your money, you may find that your mental health is affected. Likewise, if you find that you cannot cope with your feelings or behaviour, you may find that you get into financial difficulties. 

This section, kindly supported by the Royal Bank of Scotland, contains a range of pages that explain how mental health can affect your finances, and give tips on how to manage your money if you do experience mental distress. You can also download our booklet Keeping on top of your finances.
