Many people with a mental health condition struggle with their finances. For some, it means sliding into debt. People with mental illness are three times more likely to be in debt. This may add to the pressures and anxieties which are triggers for the mental illness. It can become a vicious spiral of money worries, illness and growing debt.

We're asking the Government to recategorise this form as an NHS form, so that no GPs can charge for it - removing a barrier that prevents many getting the help they need.

It's the biggest consumer decision any of us will ever make. It affects our economy, foreign policy, immigration policy, security and sovereignty. Our vote on whether the UK should leave the EU will reverberate through our lifetimes, and those of our children and grandchildren. If you've already made up your mind how to vote, good. I'm not campaigning - I don't want to change it. If you haven't, my aim is to help you ignore the spin and sales to weigh up the right decision for you, your community, our nation and the wider world too.

Open Letter to David Cameron About the Retrospective Student Loan Hike

Martin Lewis | Posted 15.01.2017 | UK Universities & Education
Martin Lewis

As you may be aware, I have engaged lawyers who are currently looking at whether this change can be challenged legally. Yet this is just as much a moral issue as a legal one. A retrospective change will destroy any trust current and future generations can have in the student finance system, and perhaps, even more widely, in the political system as a whole.
