Abstract

In this policy briefing, the problem of debt and its inherent consequences for health will be further investigated. In particular, the briefing will be focusing on the close relationship existing between debt and mental health issues and what actions health and social care professionals can pursue in order to ease the burden and make a positive difference in the people’s lives affected by debt and mental health problems. Finally, a set of urgent and cost-effective policy measures and research recommendations will be suggested.
