Calls to Beacon and other EAPs concerning financial issues and money management are rising. Accompanying economic troubles is heightened stress related to declining savings and an insecure job market. Some people are more likely to relieve stress through unhealthy activities like drinking, gambling or emotional eating. In addition, economic pressures can also lead to increased conflict and tension within our relationships. There are some basic principals that individuals can follow to mange money within these challenging times. A Beacon counselor will gladly assist you and your family in addressing financial concerns and how they impact your physical, physiological and economic well-being.
