• Screening and support to access advice available elsewhere
• Integrated care pathways for mental health and financial / welfare support
• Support into employment, such as individualised placement support
• Measures to support mental health staff to make referrals for financial advice (eg a central database of advice agencies, a prompting or screening process, training on welfare advice)
• Helplines that can give financial advice alongside mental health support
• Social prescribing (for example to adult learning)
