The Consequences of Financial Stress for Individuals, Families, and Society
People in financial trouble often view their situation as catastrophic. They can suffer from serious debt stress which may result in health and/or relationship problems, depression, and even suicide. At Doyle Salewski’s request, Carleton University composed a survey designed to measure our clients’ stress levels and ability to cope both before and after meeting with us. The survey showed that 90 percent of our clients averaged a 50 percent decrease in stress levels after meeting with us.
