A report from the Prince's Trust has warned that around three quarters of a million young people in Britain feel they do not have anything to live for.
The Prince's Trust Macquarie Youth Index findings were released following interviews with 2,161 teenagers and young adults aged 16 to 25 in Britain. Results indicated that unemployment resulted in 40 percent of young people fighting symptoms of mental illness, including self-loathing and panic attacks.
The report added that 32 percent of the unemployed youngsters have contemplated suicide, while 24 percent admitted to self-harming. Additionally, 9 percent said they have "nothing to live for".
