Debt and mental health

The Money Advice Liaison Group (MALG) set up a working party to investigate the issues raised by the increasing incidence of debt problems and mental health conditions and the way in which these can have a reciprocal impact on money advice clients, The working party was later expanded to include three mental health organisations.

As a result, the MALG Debt & Mental Health Good Practice Awareness Guidelines were published in November 2007 (first edition), Autumn of 2009 (second edition) and a third edition in 2015.
