Samaritan calls rise because of credit crunch

1st October 2008

Calls to the charity the Samaritans are rising because of a direct effect of the credit crunch.

The Central London branch had an extra 1,000 calls during August and September this year - 25% more than in the same months last year with callers worried by the unstable financial climate and the latest fears of recession. Citizens Advice has also had more business from people with personal debt problems.  Private clinics offering stress counselling say they are seeing more professionals from the financial industry seeking help.
