The resources above don't expect workers to become debt experts,
but instead describe the big differences they can make by knowing

This work is a collaboration between people
with direct experiences of mental health problems, researchers from
the Royal College of Psychiatrists and Rethink, and collaborating
money advice, health and social care organisations.
Chris Fitch and Rob Chaplin provide guidance
to the National Working Party on Debt and Mental Health. This
is a group comprised of creditor agencies, advice agencies, and
health organisations. Overseen by the Money Advice Liaison
Group, the National Working Party published recommendations on best
practice in working with people with mental health and debt
problems in November 2007.
