RBS funds Mind's 'Money and Mental Health' guide

In 2011 the mental health charity 'Mind' and RBS produced research exploring the relationship between money management and mental health.

Supporting individuals

09 December 2011

Key findings of the report included:

  • more than three fifths of people with mental health problems feel confused about their finances
  • over 80 per cent said they often feel they are struggling to manage their finances

In response RBS have funded Mind's 'Money and Mental Health' guide which aims to support as many people as possible living with a mental health illness, and help them to take positive steps towards keeping their financial affairs in check.

RBS is continuing to explore how it can better support customers who are impacted by mental illness. We are currently rolling out training for our staff which has been developed in conjunction with the Royal College of Psychiatrists, Money Advice Trust and Rethink Mental Illness. This will better equip them to identify and best support those with mental illness.

If you would like a copy of the ‘Money and Mental Health’ guide it can be downloaded for free at www.mind.org.uk/money.
