Episode 54 – Mental Wellbeing & Money
The guys take a canter around the subject of mental health in this episode of the Financial Wellbeing Podcast. Although Chris, David and Producer Tommo are not experts in mental health, they are in money. They stick to how financial issues effect mental wellbeing along with signposting for more information and further help. As ever there is the Ovation Client Question and #tightasstommo tips. This may be a tricky topic, but we urge you to stick with it and have a listen.
