Modern young Britons are the most unhappy in the last ten years

Modern teenagers are the most unhappy in the last ten years. The reason for this is ignorance and inability to cope with failures and life vicissitudes.

Charity organization Prince's Trust, founded by the Prince of Wales, conducted research according to which young people aged 16-25 years are too afraid about their future, and also cannot cope with financial problems.

The study showed that the indicator of happiness, self-confidence and emotional health decreased to the lowest level since 2009.

The emotional health index of young people estimates the level of happiness in such areas as work and personal relationships from 0 to 100. This year the overall average rating was 57, which is four points less than last year, and decreased from 70 from the time when the study was conducted for the first time.

Almost half of the young people said that they do not feel that they can cope with the failures in life. Many respondents stated that they cannot solve financial problems, and this can jeopardize their mental health. Every tenth said that he lost his job, and 54% reported that they are constantly worried about their finances. 61% of young people said that they regularly experience stress, 53% noted that they are constantly worried about something, and 27% feel hopeless.

Nick Stace, CEO of The Prince's Trust in the UK, said: "It is an alarming call for us that young people feel unhappier, than ever before. This generation, quickly losing faith in their ability to achieve their goals in life. They are increasingly disappointed in their work, and therefore do not reveal their potential. One of the most important things that we can do to stop this is to show young people that they deserve high achievements, can provide themselves a good life and make progress in their careers. "

Prince's Trust stated that it will work with the charitable organization Young Minds to review its programs and include aspects that could improve the mental health of young participants.

A charitable organization, founded in 1976, works with young people and helps them find a job or continue their education.
