Financial instability has been linked to increased risk of relapse, family burden and strain, substance abuse, and homelessness among people with serious mental illnesses. People with psychiatric disabilities often report not having enough money for basic necessities, and they consistently endorse financial management among their top personal goals. Financial well-being, on the other hand, is associated with greater quality of life, self-efficacy, and reduced psychiatric symptoms; therefore, financial management may be an important element of rehabilitation in this population. Studies of case management for people with psychiatric disabilities often include money management as a component due to its importance in living, social, and work environments.
