How the SilverCloud® by Amwell® platform can elevate the support your business can offer
Individuals with mental health problems are 3X more likely to experience financial difficulties compared to those without.
Providing mental health services to those who are struggling with fear and anxiety due to job loss, overspending, debt, or potential redundancy, can help to alleviate and better manage their symptoms.
Together, we can deliver tools to help your customers and clients to better understand and manage their money worries and improve their relationship between their financial health and mental health.
"Space from Money Worries is developed specifically to try and break the link between financial difficulties such as debt and poor mental health such as depression, stress and anxiety. It combines research on what turns financial difficulties into poor mental health (for example worry, shame, hopelessness), and uses skills from psychological therapies such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to help tackle these."
