Exploring Women's Debt and Mental Health

This pilot project uses a novel qualitative approach to establish the theoretical foundation for a research trajectory that explicates links between debt, such as from payday loans, credit cards, student loans, medical expenses, and mental health, defined as depression and anxiety. We will conduct in-depth interviews (N = 30) and four focus groups (N = 20) to explore women’s lived experiences, oversampling women of color, with higher-cost debt and to understand how this debt has affected their mental health.
