An article appeared yesterday in the Guardian suggesting Young Britons have never been unhappier.

Young people’s happiness across every single area of their lives has never been lower, research by the Prince’s Trust has found.

The charity, set up by the Prince of Wales, said the results of its annual UK Youth Index, which gauges young people’s happiness and confidence across a range of areas, from working life to mental and physical health, should “ring alarm bells”.

The national survey shows young people’s wellbeing has fallen over the last 12 months and is at its lowest level since the study was first commissioned in 2009.
