Prince’s Trust charity discovers nearly half of young people not in work, education or training feel depressed, reports The Guardian.

More than one in four young people in work admits to feeling down or depressed always or often, with this figure rising to nearly half among their unemployed peers, according to a youth charity.

The Prince’s Trust study on happiness found 27% in work reported feeling down or depressed always or often increasing to 48% among those who are not in employment, education or training (Neets).

The findings, based on interviews with 2,136 16- to 25-year-olds in the UK, showed one in 10 felt unable to cope with day-to-day life, with those classified as Neets twice as likely to feel this way as their peers.
