Nhs Launches Credit Crunch Stress Line

Recommended Posts

New this month July 09

NHS Credit Crunch Stressline

Tel: 0300 123 2000

In an economic downturn, more people suffer from distress, depression and anxiety. They are worried about jobs, worried about debt, and worried about housing. Early support for their emotional wellbeing will prevent them having more serious problems and expert advice will help them to get their lives back on track.

The National Health Service (NHS) set up a dedicated helpline in July 2009 for people who are stressed by the credit crunch, to supplement and link with the range of help already available. The NHS Credit Crunch Stressline is staffed by health advisers who will assess people over the phone and give them the resources they need to overcome their difficulties – which may include referring them to other sources of help about the issues causing their distress.

In offering this service, the NHS Credit Crunch Stressline aims to ease demand on the precious time and resources of other parts of the NHS and other services during the economic downturn.

The Stressline will

1. listen to you

2. offer you useful information you can trust

3. guide you through your crisis

4. help you to get back in control of your life

This, and throwing £2500 per person at companies who employ those out of work for 6+ months, makes me wonder just how far down the toilet this country is going to go...

In true mollycudly style. Call centre reply -

"It wasn't your fault that the global economy collapsed. No one saw that coming. Of course you deserved that BMW 3 series whilst working on the tills at XXXXX*. I am sure the bank will happily consolidate your £50K on credit cards, and re-arrange a suitable repayment schedule. Remember it started in America"

*Insert shut down highstreet shop.

So that's what happened to Ocean Finance.

Oh yeah, all those heavily-advertised "consolidation" and "free the equity in your home" loan companies seemed to disappear post 2007..

how many times has gordon phoned

:lol:

Very good.

This thread seems to capture the changed mood on here; I've noticed most of us have moved beyond the anger phase and seem now to be in the "if I didn't laugh I'd cry" phase.

Sky channel 888. Fortunately I have cable so am spared the posibility of accidentally landing on it (mind you, that's probably the only thing Virgin have going for them)...

Isn't every public body or corporate helpline already a stress line?

Phone expensive NGN number, prepare for the journey into the catacombs of the call centre helpline.

If you call, beware the heavy breathing of a HMRC inspector listening in.

Can't keep up payments on the flat you have been letting out eh...

I might phone in with a well documented case of credit crunch affluenza.

"Well it was like this, I sold my house at top of the market........blah blah blah blah blah"

This sort of behaviour was of course considered normal during the boom - now I expect it would get you committed.
