Having financial worries has a cyclical link with poor mental health and this stress can leave you feeling depressed and anxious. We all know that the COVID-19 pandemic has put us under strain both financially and mentally so why not relieve some of that tension by taking charge of your finances.

To support our large community of UCD alumni and friends, we have put together this series with experts across savings, health insurance, mortgages and investments. These sessions will last about 45 minutes so are perfect if you want to listen at ease on your lunch break while learning some valuable tips!
