468. Insights: COVID-19 - Mental health and financial wellbeing

For World Mental Health Day, David Brear is joined by some great guests to discuss money and mental health during the coronavirus pandemic.

There is no question 2020 has been a tough year for most. With the recent coronavirus outbreak, both our finances and mental wellbeing have been tested and strained in ways they never have been before. With World Mental Health Day around the corner, we wanted to take a closer look at how finance interacts with the mental health problems that affect 1 in 4 of us and how the pandemic is putting additional pressure on our mental and financial wellbeing.

To dive into this topic, David Brear is joined by:

  • Jamie Clements - Account executive, 11:FS & host of the Man Down: The Anti-Man-Up Movement podcast
  • Nikki Bond - Senior Research Officer, Money and Mental Health Policy Institute
  • Garry Evans - Chief Innovation Officer, OpenWrks & Chief Product Officer, Tully

The group also discusses how this period of time is potentially influencing our future financial decisions and how fintech firms and banks alike can embed socially responsible features into their products.
