Service summary has published a free booklet for people with mental health issues and their carers. Mind, along with other charities, provided guidance on the information. The booklet covers:

- handling debt
- free debt counselling
- working with banks
- living with mental distress
- how family and friends can help

Moneysavingexpert's guidance is for anyone worried about the impact of debt on their lives, so they can manage their money and seek advice before it gets out of hand. The guide is not only aimed at people experiencing mental health problems, but friends, family and carers who want to help them tackle their finances.

Throughout the guide, there are tips to start taking small steps to cut debt, with real-life case studies that are colour coded: the sadder stories highlighted in red and the success stories in green. If you are feeling low and not in the mood to read about someone else's problems, you can simply skip the red ones.
