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.
