Debt and Mental Health
Christians Against Poverty are a major national charity working with people in debt. From their website
Christians Against Poverty is a national debt counselling charity working through a network of centres based in local churches. CAP offers hope and a solution to anyone in debt through its unique, in-depth service. CAP aims to show God’s love in action by providing sustainable poverty relief through debt counselling, advice and practical help. CAP’s unique ‘hands on’ approach empowers people to help themselves out of poverty and be released from the fear, oppression and worry generated by overwhelming debts. We are providing sustainable poverty relief as our service teaches clients vital budgeting skills that will last a lifetime.
In March 2008, Dr Rob Waller delivered a day of teaching to Centre Managers on the link between debt and mental health, including how to spot people in danger of suicide and how to help them. These three audio files are large and long – over one hour for each session.
