This 34-year-old paid off $81,000 in student debt, but not before it took a toll on her mental health

‘We need to make sure college students have access to financial education.’

20.8.2019

Roughly a quarter of millennials say their student loans keep them up at night, research shows

‘We need to make sure college students have access to financial education.’

“I was panicking,” Lockert said. “I had done everything millennials were told to do. I had gotten a master’s degree and gone to a prestigious school.”

“I didn’t make a bad decision per se. I went to a good school. But at that point, I felt so aimless,” she said.

Individuals in the study who reported what the researchers defined as “good financial behaviors,” including “tracking monthly expenses, spending within a budget, responsible borrowing, saving, and investing,” were less likely to experience depression after college.

But those who “manage their money well” can often do so because they have less debt, Katherine Keyes, an associate professor of epidemiology at Columbia’s Mailman School of Public Health, told MarketWatch.

Mental-health troubles can make life more expensive To manage the depression and anxiety surrounding her student debt, Lockert began going to therapy in Portland.

‘I made my last payment in December 2015’ While struggling to pay off her debt and working temp jobs seven days a week, Lockert started a blog titled Dear Debt in 2013 to document her journey. “I didn’t find anyone talking about mental health or emotions related to debt, and I felt alone,” she said.

Her first year freelancing full-time, she brought in $60,000 and was beginning to pay off her debt.

“I finally had time to see friends again. I wasn’t working seven days a week anymore. I went to Italy with my mom, and I moved to LA,” she said. “It was so exciting.”

“Though mental health itself is getting more attention, the intersection of debt and mental health is still not discussed widely,” she said. “I get many people Googling GOOGL, +1.80% GOOG, +1.77% ‘I want to kill myself because of debt’ and finding my blog.”
