We’re delighted that our local MP Wera Hobhouse has given her full support to our Mind Over Money campaign, aimed at improving the mental wellbeing of people in our district by tackling debt.

MP Wera Hobhouse said “One of my key roles as MP for Bath is supporting the most vulnerable members of our community. Some constituents come to my surgery as a last resort presenting very serious problems. Mental health issues are common, and, from my vantage point, they appear to be on the rise. Sometimes there are links with other issues including debt which can cause huge anxiety.

Everyone in Bath and North East Somerset should be concerned that our district’s suicide rate is above the national average. I fully support the Mind Over Money campaign. As a community, we have a shared responsibility to ensure that those experiencing the dangerous mix of mental health issues and debt have the support they need.”
