Your mental health

SKU: 1.8
  • Advice

    Living with an IVA can often feel restrictive. Your creditors effectively determine how you will live your life for the next five years, and navigating this new way of life can have a severe impact on your mental wellbeing. For example, you might think it's pointless to get a job if most of your money goes to an IVA or become depressed at the lack of money to do things you would like to do.

    We politely suggest the following to alleviate any mental or emotional pressures.

    • Don't be afraid to ask for support. Charities such as the Samaritans and Mind provide free support for anyone struggling with their mental health. You can also talk to your GP for professional help and advice.
    • Join a Peer Group – Debt and IVAs can be a lonely experience that isolates you even from the people who know and love you best. You are not alone in this, and others understand and offer support. Joining a peer group allows you to communicate and interact with people who understand exactly where you are coming from. You can find more about these through your local library or the Citizen Advice office.
