You can verify with the sheriff’s office if you have paperwork.

You can achieve financial wellness
Financial wellness can affect physical, mental well-being

At some time in everyone’s life, there may be stress caused by financial concerns – credit card debt, unemployment causing a drain on savings and other resources, substantial bills with insufficient income to pay those bills, and, particularly at this time of year, significant due or overdue income or other taxes. On occasion, these stresses can become overwhelming. This is why being aware of and taking care of your financial wellness is so important.
As part of its campaign to highlight the Eight Dimensions of Wellness created and publicized by the U. S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Community Mental Health Center, Inc., Lawrenceburg, is focusing this story on Financial Wellness.

Financial wellness can affect well-beingSAMHSA defines Financial Wellness as “Satisfaction with current and future financial situations.” According to the website, “Financial wellness is an intricate balance of the mental, spiritual and physical aspects of money . . . Financial wellness is having an understanding of your financial situation and taking care of it in such a way that you are prepared for financial changes. Maintaining that balance consists of being comfortable with where your money comes from and where it is going.”

Working to achieve financial wellness likely will involve learning about how to overcome personal financial challenges at some point in your life. Areas of focus in these efforts often include such topics as debt reduction, asset management, and saving for current and future needs. Budgeting and keeping records based on your budgeting also are important. Many times, resources for addressing financial planning and wellness needs are available through your employer or through an independent financial planner. Check with your employer, then seek outside guidance, as needed, if you believe this will help you with your plans to achieve financial wellness.

Taking the steps outlined above will help you reduce stress caused by debt, substantial bills, or other financial challenges. There may be instances when you have been under significant stress for some time while working to address and solve your financial challenges. This may cause issues for individuals or families that require outside assistance to help resolve.

“Financial wellness is a goal that requires planning and attention,” said CMHC Executive Director Tom Talbot. “When you have financial wellness, it helps facilitate physical and emotional wellness,” said Mr. Talbot
