Today is World Mental Health Day.
The theme for this year, set by the World Federation for Mental Health, is ‘Make mental health and wellbeing for all a global priority’.
And we want to play our part in highlighting it!
Your mental health is so, so important. It can affect how we feel, think and act. It can heavily influence our emotional, psychological and social wellbeing.
At Lifetime we believe that your financial health also affects your mental health.
The awareness and concern for mental health has increased throughout society, and the link between financial and mental wellbeing is clear. There is no point in businesses spending money attempting to improve their employees’ mental wellbeing without a focus on financial health too.
Discussing money worries with your employer would, to most people, be an even more uncomfortable situation, so having an independent, trusted service – available 365 days a year – can help overcome that barrier.
Encouraging employees to talk about money and giving them answers in a safe, neutral environment could change their whole financial perspective, helping them enjoy the here and now, while also planning for the future.
It could also massively boost both their mental health, and financial health.
