Young people not in employment, education or training are more than twice as likely to feel unable to cope as their peers

Youth Index 2013: The Princes Trust

  • One in ten young people feel they cannot cope with day-to-day life
  • Young people not in employment, education or training (NEETs) are more than twice as likely to feel unable to cope as their peers.
  • More than one in five young people (22 per cent) did not have someone to talk to about their problems while they were growing up.
  • 27 per cent of young people in work feel down or depressed ‘always’ or ‘often’, and this increases to almost half (48 per cent) among NEETs
