Dealing with your landlord if you suffer from stress and depression.

Living with mental health issues can feel like an uphill struggle, and your home can often feel like you only sanctuary from the stress of the outside world. But what happens when your home becomes the very thing that triggers your stress and anxiety?

Living in a property that is falling into disrepair can be a huge burden for anyone to carry. Not only can it be inconvenient and unsightly but living among poor conditions in your home can also put both yours and your family’s health and wellbeing at serious risk, especially when it comes to issues such as mould or rising damp around children and adults with respiratory conditions.

In many cases, if the disrepair issues include damp and mould, or structural issues, it will be your landlord’s legal obligation to deal with these problems in a timely manner. However, if you’re also struggling with stress, depression or any other mental health issues, you may find that discussing these problems with your landlords is an extremally overwhelming feat.
