Buckinghamshire Mind and Citizens Advice Bucks are working together to better understand how the cost of living crisis is impacting all of us.
We know finances and money worries can negatively impact our mental health and wellbeing.
- 93% of adults report that their cost of living has risen over the last year.
- 77% of adults said that they are worried about this.
- 43% of adults who pay energy bills said they found it very or somewhat difficult to pay their last bill.
We are conducting research to ensure we are best informed on these impacts locally, so we can target and shape inclusive, agile and responsive services shaped for our local needs.
We need your help to make this happen. Please can you complete a short survey on managing money and mental health?
Have you accessed mental health services or support? If yes, we would like to invite you to participate in a workshop we are running at the Buckinghamshire Mind’s High Wycombe office on 1st December. We are running two sessions to accommodate different schedules. There will be a morning session from 11:00-12:00 and an afternoon session from 13:30-14:30. The workshops will last one hour and you will receive a £10 love2shop voucher for your time. Tea and coffee will be provided.
Workshops will be strictly private and confidential. We will discuss your attitudes to money and mental health, as well as what a new service could look like. If you wish to participate, please email [email protected].
If you are unable to attend these workshops, but still wish to participate in the research, please let us know by contacting [email protected]
Thank you very much, your insights are hugely valuable and appreciated.
