By Trinity Richardson
It’s no secret that personal financing can be a burden, but researchers have found that financial stress and poor mental health are inextricably linked. Does debt have a negative impact on mental health, or do mental illnesses result in poor financial management? It’s very likely that both are true and feed into each other. The National Institute of Health reports that, “nearly one in five U.S. adults live with a mental illness.”
