The Hidden Impact of Poor Credit on Mental Health By Lewis Camilleri


“As the founder of Boshhh, I am constantly inspired by our mission to empower individuals on their financial journeys.

“I want to delve into a topic that often goes unnoticed in discussions about workplace productivity: the profound impact of poor credit on mental health.

“In our society, credit plays a pivotal role in nearly every aspect of our financial life and also permeates various aspects of our lives, including our careers.

“The consequences of struggling with poor credit can be profound, affecting not only your financial well-being but also your mental and emotional health.

“Picture this: You're at work, striving to thrive in your role, but there's a lingering weight on your shoulders – the burden of financial stress. You may find it challenging to focus, to be present in meetings, or to perform at your best. This isn't mere coincidence; it's the direct consequence of the mental toll that poor credit can take.

“At Boshhh, we believe in the power of empowerment, support, and trust. We understand that financial challenges can impact individuals on a deeply personal level, influencing their confidence, self-esteem, and overall well-being. That's why it's crucial to shine a light on the link of credit and mental health in the workplace.

“When employees are struggling with financial stressors stemming from poor credit, the ripple effects are felt throughout the organisation. Productivity may decline, absenteeism may rise, and workplace morale may suffer. Moreover, the stigma surrounding financial difficulties can exacerbate feelings of shame and isolation, further compounding the issue.

“However, amidst these challenges, there is hope. By fostering a culture of support and understanding, employers can play a pivotal role in mitigating the negative impact of poor credit on mental health. This begins with open dialogue and creating a safe space for employees to seek help and support.

“It's time to reframe the conversation surrounding credit and mental health in the workplace. By acknowledging the interconnectedness of these issues and taking proactive steps to address them, we can create a more inclusive and supportive environment for all.

“Remember, you are not alone on your journey toward financial well-being. At Boshhh, we're here to empower you every step of the way.

“Together, let's redefine what it means to thrive – both financially and emotionally.”
