Mental- health debt forms


Currently, people facing a debt crisis who have mental- health issues are required to get a form completed by a health profession­al if they wish to seek financial support. Charges range from £ 30 to £ 150. However, under new rules proposed by the British Medical Associatio­n, patients will be able to submit other evidence, such as prescripti­ons or clinic letters – and where the forms are needed, they will be provided free.
