All this week we've been reporting on Mental Health issues, the stigma behind them, and the affect it can have on friends and family of victims. Our latest report focussed on mental illness in the young.
Paul Brown, Communications Director from the Prince's Trust, a charity that helps improve the lives of young people, explained more about the extent of the problem:
For our fourth day of Mental Health Awareness week, we're looking at how young people are affected by mental health issues.
A report by the Princes Trust showed that 17 per cent of young people in the North West experienced symptoms of mental illness as a direct result of unemployment.
- In the UK, there are 1 million young people struggling to find a job
- Of those 40% have had symptoms of mental illness, that's 400,000 young people
- 1-in-3 of long term young unemployed people have contemplated suicide
Steve was unemployed for eight years and developed mental health issues during this time.
He found help from the Prince's Trust and now works to help other young people who face unemployment.

Lake District National Park rangers have asked young people if there is enough for them to do in Cumbria. The answer was largely no.
The result is many cannot see any other option than moving away for work or training which could leave a brain drain in the county as young people choose to head south instead.
The National Park has started to address their concerns by getting a group of just over 20 together for a fun day, while hearing what the main barriers are for them enjoying life in South Cumbria and staying here when they are older.
