- The report reveals that while 27 per cent of young people in work feel down or depressed always or often, this increases to almost half (48 per cent) among NEETs.
- More than one in five, or 22%, said they did not have someone to talk to about their problems while they were growing up, with Neets significantly less likely to have had someone to confide in
