Prince’s Trust report highlights teenage stress
The following is a news story from Hafal’s Big Lottery-funded Young People’s Information Hub. To access the Hub please visit: http://www.hafal.org/hafal/yp_index.php
A report by the Prince’s Trust has stated that a lack of structure in young people’s lives means thousands of teenagers are growing up to become ‘lost’ young adults.
The Prince’s Trust research found that more than half of young people in Wales feel stressed most, if not all of the time.
Bill Walden-Jones, Chief Executive of the Welsh mental health charity, Hafal, and Swansea Service User Kyle Thomas spoke about the report on ITV Wales last night.
