COVID-19 & coping with financial stress: Infographic

Person suffering from financial stress during the pandemic

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, families across the UK have been hit with financial difficulties. Personal finances are rarely spoken about in public and when we’re met with financial hardship or stress, this can make finding a way out all the more difficult.

To help bring awareness to this reality and offer steps to find support to alleviate the negative impact financial woes can have on your mental health, we have created this helpful infographic.

What is an infographic & how can this help?

An infographic is a visual representation of information and ideas. Infographics are very useful tools to help people understand important information. Research shows that our brains are 60,000 times faster at processing images than written text. This makes sense, as most of what our brain processes are visual images from things we see.

What Useful Information is Covered?

It’s important to realise that financial stress, especially during this pandemic, is something quite normal. Many people are facing financial difficulties right now and if you are one of them, it's important to know that you are not alone.

In this Infographic we’ll explore some of the data surrounding job loss and redundancies due to the Coronavirus Pandemic and how that has played an important role in people’s mental health when it comes to finances and stress.

We’ll also look at signs of financial stress and how to identify the impact it is having on our mental health. This will help you identify if loved ones or people you know may be struggling.

Lastly, we’ll detail steps you can take to alleviate financial anxiety from COVID-19, as well as important free resources you can count on to find help during these challenging times.

Please remember that you are not alone in your troubles. We are all in this together and there are both people and resources available to help you through this difficult time. Take a look at the infographic below and please feel free to share it with those you think could benefit from the information.
