International Healthcare News: Debt 'can cause chronic stress'

Expats with international healthcare insurance policies who have been suffering from stress may find debt problems are contributing to their condition.

Therapist Dan Roberts explained financial pressures that become unsustainable can place a burden on people and be "really damaging".

He explained mortgages and minor overdrafts are not really an issue, but escalating credit card debt "puts a great deal of pressure" on individuals.

"The thing about debt is it's chronic stress, day in day out – a trickle effect that doesn't really go away," he remarked.

Those who are feeling stressed as a result of money concerns may wish to seek assistance as soon as possible and Mr Roberts said it could be affecting growing numbers of people, as the global financial crisis has increased business failures and redundancies.

The therapist's comments echo those of life coach Joanne Mallon, who recently said worrying about money can quickly drain a person's energy.
