MIND – Arian ac iechyd meddwl

Gall ennill a rheoli arian fod yn anoddach os ydych yn dioddef iechyd meddwl gwael. Gall poeni am arian waethygu eich iechyd meddwl. Gall ddechrau teimlo fel cylch cythreulig.


Darganfyddwch mwy am drefnu eich cyllid a hawlio budd-daliadau, pan fydd gennych broblemau iechyd meddwl, delio â gwasanaethau a gofalu am eich iechyd meddwl pan rydych chi’n gofidio am arian. Ewch i: Arian a iechyd meddwl - Mind
