Money and Mental Health: Time to Make the Connection

The Institute reports are based on data from citizens in the U.K. but data on similar issues involving Americans is also available. The 2015 Stress in America report—an annual measure of the sources and outcomes of stress—issued by the American Psychological Association stated that 72% of those surveyed said they were stressed about money and financial issues, with almost 1 in 4 extremely or severely stressed. This result coincides with those from previous years; in fact money and finances have been the number one stressor reported by Americans every year since the survey began.
