Why are young adults spending more than six hours a day stressed out?
Weighing up your options after leaving school can be demanding and strenuous for young people. It’s been found that students who join university and college aren’t enjoying it as often don’t explore their options.
What has been described as an ‘epidemic’ sweeping across universities and colleges, it has been found young adults are spending more than six hours a day stressed out. The University of Reading says there has been a 20% year-on-year increase in students wanting help from counsellors. Increasing numbers of students are stressed about the transition of leaving home when going to university, rising cost of studying fees, college deadlines and uncertainties about job prospects once they leave education.
As academic pressures are becoming detrimental to young people’s mental health. If university or college isn’t for you, we can help. Apprenticeships give students the opportunity to learn while they earn money and gain a qualification. At TCHC we offer various apprenticeships, look on http://www.tchc.net/services/apprenticeships.
