One in ten young people feel life is meaningless
12% of young people in Britain feel life is not worth living according to a report published by the Prince's Trust. That's more than 1 in 10 of UK children.
47% of young people said that they were regularly stressed.
This will further support the calls for better social and emotional education lessons in schools though others feel that schools can't solve problems that are caused by faults that cut through society including family life.
One in ten young people in Britain think life is not worth living, a report published today has claimed.
Of 2,000 16- to 25-year-olds surveyed for the Prince’s Trust, 12% said their life was “meaningless”, whilst 14% thought “life has no purpose”. One in five felt like crying “often” or “always” and nearly half (47%) felt regularly stressed.
The worst affected were those not in education, employment or training (Neets). Thirty seven per cent of Neets polled claimed to be down or depressed compared to 27% of all those surveyed by polling body YouGov.
