Briefing paper 54: the public health implications of rising debt BRIEFING PAPER 54 October 2018 www.gcph.co.uk • Unsecure personal debt, including; credit cards, overdrafts and short-term loans, is at its highest level in the UK since before the 2008 economic recession; with the level projected to rise higher still in the coming years. • The high level of unsecure personal debt is related to the economy, labour market conditions, government policy and the re-emergence of irresponsible lending (...) practice. • Approximately 4.5 million borrowers with personal unsecure debt suffer moderate to severe ‘financial d istress’, experiencing financial difficu lties or other issues such as mental health problems from the strain of repaying their debts • The evidence reviewed makes clear the risks to public health; those with this form of debt are significantly more likel y to experience mental d isorders compared with the wider population and there are also proven links to worsened physical health

Opportunities and challenges in public and community engagement: the connected for cognitive health in later life (CHILL) project Two goals of public health research are to understand what causes disease and ill health, and what can be done to prevent it. To develop appropriate and effective actions, we need to know what resources are available to communities, and what are the beliefs and values that influence behaviour. This means that research needs to be carried out close to the people (...) of the challenges in attempting to involve people in shaping research and intervention development, before offering some conclusions and suggested next steps for researchers.Background Identifying risk of disease and ill health, and developing prevention strategies, are key objectives in public health research.
