Recession and Mental Health

News today that, in the current recession, mental health of the public is suffering. Not just on the UK, either; this effect seems to be spreading across Europe.

Driving home today, as the news came that British Gas are hitching up their energy prices by a whopping 16-18%, I couldn't help but wonder how many people would be pushed a little closer to the edge by the sudden and marked rise in the cost of living.

I wonder what can be done, in the face of increasing pressure from external factors like this, to support people who feel they are struggling?
