More health from modern society
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.
Further reasons for unhappiness included feeling no sense of community, not feeling safe to walk around at night and not having anything to do. Having a dead-end job was also cited as a major contributing factor.
