‘Managing Debt to Improve Your Mental Wealth’ now available as free download

Posted on October 28, 2011

As Americans are consumed by record amounts of debt, Money Management International (MMI), the nation’s largest nonprofit credit counseling agency, announces the release of a free eBook to help consumers understand the far-reaching impact of debt.

According to an MMI study on personal finance, 24 percent of Americans blame financial hardships for health-related issues such as depression, anxiety, and sleeping problems. In addition, 27 percent of Americans say financial worries are negatively impacting their marriage.

With the eBook “Managing Debt to Improve Your Mental Wealth,” the financial experts at MMI help readers explore debt in a new, unique way. By breaking the issue down into three parts, readers will be able to evaluate their own personal situation throughout the book:

• First, readers will define debt and discover its affect on health, relationships, work productivity and general happiness.

• Next, readers will learn how to assess their situation through thought-provoking quizzes and exercises.

• Finally, readers will be challenged to envision a debt-free life, and then given the tips and tools necessary to make that vision a reality.

In addition to “Managing Debt to Improve Your Mental Wealth,” MMI offers a variety of resources in various platforms to help consumers navigate the path to financial freedom:

• Consumers can attend a free webinar, such as Put your Debt on a Diet  and Planning for the Holidays.

• Read personal debt stories from MMI clients.

• Listen to podcasts featuring client success stories.

• Watch a video on the benefits of repaying debt.

• Or go ahead a take the first step toward financial freedom by filling out an online counseling form.

“Financial problems impact more than one person – they impact relationships, families, businesses, and communities,” said Kim McGrigg, national spokesperson for MMI. “But making the decision to improve your financial situation can reverse these effects. And here at MMI we are committed to helping people realize their dream of financial security.”
