Over 20,000 people were battling problem debt whilst in hospital for their mental health last year in England alone – with thousands more struggling at home.

The Government is introducing a new ‘Breathing Space’ scheme, to give people in problem debt a window without fees or charges, and where they won’t be pursued by creditors if they seek debt advice.

But this won’t support the tens of thousands of people in mental health crisis who are too unwell to either manage their finances alone, or to seek debt advice.

A campaign by Money and Mental Health is calling on the Government to extend the Breathing Space scheme to allow people in mental health crisis space to recover. We’re supporting them and back their call for #RecoverySpace.
