294. Insights: Money and Mental Health


There’s no question about the impact finances have on mental health and with today being Time to Talk Day (7th February) we wanted to take a closer look at how finance interacts with the mental health problems that affect 1 in 4 of us. Time to Talk Day wants to break down the stigmas around mental health and get people talking more openly about it.

Sarah’s joined by Katie Evans, Head of Research and Policy, Money and Mental Health Policy Institute, Joe Surtees, Policy Manager at the Single Financial Guidance Body and James Nicholson, Engineer at Monzo to discuss why money’s such a taboo subject in everyday discussion, spending for stress and whether technology can solve the problem or if it’ll just exacerbate it. The group also discuss positive friction, the trap of frictionless finance those who struggle with spending and the reality that some people will simply never have enough money for their needs.

We take a look at these issues and many more on this week’s episode of Fintech Insider.
