Have You Say

We know more and more people are struggling to make ends meet despite working, including thousands of us with mental health problems. We want to hear people’s experiences so we can tell the government what must change to better support us.

We’re putting out a survey for people who are 16+, live in England/Wales and have experience of mental health problems. You need to be in paid work and feel you’re either falling short of a decent standard of living; or can’t afford to eat, keep clean and stay warm and dry. Participants will get the chance to win a £25 Love2Shop or Amazon voucher for their time.

Why? We already know money and mental health problems have a two-way link – and the cost of living crisis will make that even tougher to break. The more people’s experiences we gather, the more evidence we’ll have to fight for change.

The survey will run from 10 March – 9 April. It takes 10-20 minutes to complete.

We would be really grateful if you were able to complete the survey or share it with anyone affected over the month. You could also share our social media posts – keep an eye on our channels!
