Debt and mental health are strongly linked. Over 25% of Scots experience a mental health issue in any given year. That’s not including the added impact caused by Coronavirus in recent times.
Mental health issues cover a range of experiences, including anxiety and depression, schizophrenia, phobias, as well as many other conditions.
Experiences of mental health conditions can also change over time, and sometimes even from day-to-day. Mental health issues, like physical illnesses, vary greatly from person to person. Mental health issues can be for short periods of time or last much longer.
Experiencing a mental health issue does not automatically mean that you are unable to manage your money or deal with your debts, but it can make it more difficult. Research shows that half of adults in Scotland who are struggling with severe money issues, also have a mental health issue.

Jemma wrote a review saying :
“I think I speak for everybody when I say debt isn’t a nice feeling to have over you, especially when it’s not your fault.
The worry and stress and pressure of most to pay it back at high demand from creditors. My situation just became too much that I needed a way out, and I had to stop being stubborn and ask for help. When I came about Trust Deed Scotland, I was cautious at first but that soon changed from a very kind and helpful gentleman called Joe.
Right from the beginning this guy has been amazing and answered all the questions I needed and basically held my hand and took me through the steps. Always at the other end of the phone if I needed, and also I got invited to the main office to meet face to face so I could be more reassured that it was all legit and see it. Office it lovely by the way.
The process isn’t long, at moments it did feel long as I still had the pressure of creditors calling and emailing but I just got told to hold off, and I think COVID slowed down the process from normal but I felt at ease through it all thanks to Joe. Now my paperwork is complete, I now know in 48payments I’ll be debt free having a huge chunk off my debt paid which is fantastic and now I can pick myself back up and start going again, as life is really too short to feel this way!”
Stewart also added a review:
“Although being in debt is very stressful and embarrassing, Trust Deed Scotland has been great. Vicki in particular has been fantastic at helping me sort out my debts. Thank you.
It’s the best thing I’ve done and the company have been a godsend as they’ve helped relieve the massive stress I was feeling. If you are struggling with debt then don’t hesitate to give them a call.”
Maria added of her experience:
“I cannot recommend Trust Deed Scotland highly enough. In particular, Trish, who supported me through every step of the process, with loads of patience and knowledge.
This was a stress-free and extremely quick process, with Trish keeping me posted and up to date throughout it all. I feel as though a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders.
Trish provided me with a first-class service and was extremely professional, without making me feel anxious or embarrassed by my financial situation at any time. 10/10.”
