National Survey by Lady Gaga’s Foundation Says Most Young People Are Struggling With Mental Health

Nine in 10 young people are concerned about their mental health, but more than half (six in 10) say they are struggling, according to a national survey by Lady Gaga‘s foundation.

Most (55 percent) of the 2,000 13- to 24-year-olds interviewed across the US said they were stressed.

A third (34 percent) felt hapless or sad most of the time, and nearly a third (30 percent) often felt fearful.

Those figures spiked alarmingly when the researchers looked specifically at LGBTQ+ youth, who were more stressed (69 percent), sad (53 percent) and fearful (44 percent) than their peers who identified as heterosexual.

The report, compiled by a research group on behalf of the Born This Way Foundation, found half of under-25s don’t know where to find support, and nearly half (42 percent) say they can’t afford the resources they’re offered.
