The Great Courses PlusThis episode of the Mo’ Money Podcast is sponsored by the The Great Courses Plus. They offer a library of courses on thousands of topics, so there’s nothing stopping you from leveling up your knowledge today! To get FREE access for 1 month, visit and mental health, have you ever wondered if there is a connection? Because there absolutely is. And surprisingly, even though this is something I’ve known for a while, and even experienced in my personal life, I’ve never had anyone on the podcast to talk about it with me.

Luckily, I know people. Like Melanie Lockert, who was on episode 21 of the podcast all the way back in 2015. A lot has happened since we recorded that episode. She published a book called Dear Debt, moved from Portland to L.A., and founded a women’s financial literacy event called Lola Retreat. She’s also become very well known as not only a debt expert, but also a money and mental health advocate.

And that’s what we’re talking about on the show, hopefully to shed some light on a topic not many people are talking about. If you or someone you know is struggling with financial issues, mental health issues, or both, here are some resources we mentioned on the show that you may want to look into for help:
