A Consumer’s Depression

Anxiety and depression are so common that they are widely considered to be the “common colds” of mental health — although to the individual who is suffers, they often feel more like a bad flu, and on occasion can become potentially terminal.

While it is true that there are genetic factors which can make a person more vulnerable, there are also many situational factors which increase a person’s risk for anxiety and depression (for a more complete discussion, look at our previous blog posts on depression and anxiety).   A few of these factors are:   lack of emotional support, sleep deprivation, a history of abuse or neglect, substance abuse.    A frequently overlooked but equally as common contributor is indebtedness.

I recently read this article on the link between depression and debt.  I think it gives an excellent overview of the links between the two, as well as a summary of steps to freedom.

Warmest Regards!
