More than half of 16-25 year olds think social media creates an “overwhelming pressure” on young people, reveals The Prince’s Trust
The 2019 Prince’s Trust eBay Youth Index reports on young people’s well-being and how it changes over time. Each year, the Youth Index monitors young people’s happiness and confidence in nine aspects of their life (home, employment, money, relationships, mental and physical health etc.) asking the same questions annually to allow for year on year comparison.
On Tuesday 5th February, The Prince’s Trust will publish its tenth Youth Index report since 2009. The report shows that young people’s overall wellbeing has flat-lined to its lowest level since the research was first launched a decade ago.
By sharing the findings of the report, you can help raise vital awareness of the issues facing young people today, and how The Prince’s Trust’s support and programmes help young people to make positive steps in their lives.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
