Young People’s Happiness in the UK One of the Lowest in Europe

According to the The Good Childhood report 2015 English children are among the most unhappiest in the world.  England ranked 14th out of 15 countries for life satisfaction and 11th for feelings of happiness and feeling positive about the future, they were also ranked the lowest 15th for self confidence.

More than a third of English Young people said that they had been bullied at school and half had been excluded by class mates.

Too many young people are suffering and their problems are ignored.

At Harmless through the Hope Project, we are actively listening to young people and try to understand their experiences.  It is hoped that by attending sessions with Harmless young people will learn positive coping strategies such as talking to someone, relaxation or distraction.
