Martin Lewis opened up about the "horrendous" pressure he feels giving advice on personal finance.
As this board does that (and other boards on MSE), as a fairly newcomer I wondered if anyone mental health has been checked on?

    Not quite sure what you are getting at?  Posting on a forum is pretty much anonymous so how do you think that might take place?

    Using the inbuilt message system on here. So maybe a message after a certain number of posts.
    "If somebody applies for this [benefit] and it stops another benefit, I wouldn't sleep at night," he revealed.
    Maybe people on these forums that give more tailored advice might feel the same, so wondered the the powers above have ever checked?

    As this isn't directly a question about benefits entitlement, we'll draw this to a close, but I'll simply note that our Forum rules include this section:

    Look out for other community members

    No one knows what another person may be going through. We expect you to report any post that gives you concern for another person's wellbeing or safety. Although we may not be in a position to offer direct support ourselves, we can signpost community members to organisations that may be able to help.
