In the News: Life for students ‘fraught with loneliness and anxiety’

Summer holidays revealed as one of the loneliest times of years for young people.

The summer holidays are meant to be one of the most eagerly-anticipated times in a young person’s life but, worryingly, it’s actually emerging as one of the loneliest periods for many.

New research has revealed more than half of teenagers feel isolated during their time off from school, with a quarter saying the holidays are their loneliest time of the entire year, rising to 29 per cent among girls.

While changes in technology have made staying in touch with friends easier than ever, an over-reliance on smartphones and social media apps can actually lead teenagers to feeling more isolated as they substitute quality time with friends for texting or tweeting.

The study, compiled by the National Citizen Service (NCS), showed almost two thirds of teens will talk to their friends every day on social media, yet only 14 per cent will see them face-to-face. For some, NCS said this isolation is even greater with one in twenty teenagers not expecting to see a single friend during their time off.
