The economic situation affects our mood. We tell you how.
At ASUFIN we care about your financial health and also your mental health. The economic crisis, the need to resort to loans and the lack of liquidity affect the mental health of consumers. European studies indicate that a 1% increase in the unemployment rate increases the number of suicides by 0.8%.
According to the American Psychological Association, chronic stress caused by financial problems already affects 26% of Americans. Among the causes of this worry are unforeseen expenses, such as a car breakdown or broken appliance, lack of savings, uncertainty about retirement, lack of work or job instability. People with low incomes, families with children and young people are more prone to suffer mental health problems derived from their economic situation.
If this is your case, we share with you some tips that will help you improve your financial situation and your mental health:
Assume the problem: If you are over-indebted, analyze your situation and look for help, you can count on ASUFIN for whatever you need.
