Mental health credit crunch warning

15th August 2008

The Mental Health Foundation has warned people not to risk their mental health by isolating themselves as they try to cope with the credit crunch.

The charity polled 2,000 adults in the UK and found that a third are cutting back on going out with friends due to limited funds. It also warned that this could be the first time many have dealt with financial stress. Rather than isolating themselves, it has urged people to opt for cheaper activities that still involve socialising.
