Results for - Unemployed youth are more likely suffer mentally and physically, research suggests!
A new study is offering what it calls a rare look at the health and psychological impacts endured by Canadian youth who are not working, training or studying. The Statistics Canada research said 11.1 per cent of youth, aged 18 to 29 years old, found themselves in this situation and, therefore, were at risk of persistent social and economic challenges. The results were based on surveys of 13,270 participants between 2015 and 2017. These young people, the report said, were more likely to have poorer mental and physical health, suicidal thoughts and lower levels of life satisfaction.
