Unemployment should be a "public health issue" after youth charity the Prince's Trust revealed the extent of mental illnesses among Britain's jobless youngsters.
Shirley Cramer, chief executive of the Royal Society for Public Health, commented:
This research proves that unemployment is a public health issue.
It is one that must be tackled urgently and it is essential that youth unemployment is added to the public health agenda.
Unemployed young people are struggling in many aspects of their lives, from their mental health and wellbeing to their relationships and their qualifications and we must act quickly to end this.
