The Prince's Trust Youth Index

Prince's Trust Youth Index 2013

Today the Prince's Trust's Youth Index revealed new findings on young people's wellbeing which found one in ten young people felt unable to cope with life. The charity found individuals not in education, employment or training (NEET) were more likely to feel unable to cope.

Twenty seven per cent of young people in education claimed they felt down often/all the time, this changed to fourty eight percent for NEET young people. Chief executive Martina Milburn said: "A frightening number of unemployed young people feel unable to cope, and it is particularly tough for those who don't have a support network in place".

The research which involved 16-25 year olds found one in five young people said whilst growing up they had no one to talk to about their difficulties. Those classified at NEET were even less likely to have had someone to confide in.

These findings points towards the benefits education and employment can have on emotional wellbeing. Studying or having a job can work to increase a young persons self essteem and confidence. School's that support mental health will hopefully benefit the student's emotional wellbeing and help them towards further education and empoloyment. Where a school does not provide support or someone to talk with students mental health may end up suffering and they could potenically drop out of education.
