The personal impact of bankruptcy

At BT Acumen, we are real people, just like you. As insolvency specialists, we understand the toll a period of financial distress can take on mental health and wellbeing.

By the time someone is considering bankruptcy, wellbeing is often compromised by feelings of stress, fatigue and struggling to cope. The fear of the unknown, worry about the stigma of bankruptcy, incorrect information, and uncertainty about the future, fuels the negative impact. In other cases, financial difficulties come from trouble with addiction or mental health challenges and becoming debt free may only be the beginning of a wellness journey.

Regardless of the cause, mental health and wellbeing play a significant role in achieving successful insolvency outcomes.

No matter where you live, the following organisations can offer help and guidance.
