KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 8 — The financial stress faced by Malaysians since the pandemic began in the country last year has gone up some 35 per cent, according to a recent study by the Credit Counselling and Debt Management Agency (AKPK).

The study titled “Money and Mental Well-Being” conducted last year found more than 65 per cent out of 3,115 Malaysians interviewed felt that financial stress has affected their job performance, The Sunday Star reported today.

And 41 per cent admitted that financial stress has taken a toll on their mental health.

“A domino effect occurs when a worker’s worried state of mind affects their job performance,” AKPK chief executive officer Azaddin Ngah Tasir was reported saying.
