There’s no doubt good mental health and good financial health are much more interconnected than people like to admit.

The way people respond to financial stress is linked to their well-being. 

Financial pressures can create psychological distress, which affects peoples coping mechanisms such as confidence, feeling in control of their life and even their self-esteem.

At Sapience Financial, our team has always understood peoples financial lives and mindsets are connected to their confidence levels, and in turn to their good mental health.
