Spiraling housing costs causing millions stress, depression, and family arguments

Unaffordable housing taking more than just a financial cost

A YouGov poll commissioned by housing charity Shelter has found that housing costs are taking an enormous cost on the mental health of millions. The survey found that almost one in three adults (equivalent to 15 million people) say housing costs are causing stress and depression in their family; one in four are kept awake at night by the thought of paying the mortgage or the rent; one in four say that housing costs are the source of arguments with their spouse or partner.

Campbell Robb, Shelter’s Chief Executive, said: “These findings reveal the heartbreaking reality of living in fear of losing your home. Behind closed doors millions of families face stress, sleepless nights and strained relationships as they desperately struggle to afford their housing bills. Anyone having difficulty paying the rent or mortgage should get advice now. Don’t risk your home by leaving it too late.”
