Stressed or worried about money? We’re here for you

Worrying about money can really affect our mental wellbeing. If you’re feeling stressed, overwhelmed or are struggling to cope, we’re here to help.

In 2023, Shout took an estimated 15,300 conversations with people experiencing financial difficulties that were affecting their mental health. It’s a huge issue, but talking about the way you feel can help to ease anxiety.


Thank you for helping me through my lowest… I wouldn’t of known what could of happened to me if I didn’t speak to you, you saved my life tonight.”
