A recent survey, conducted by YouGov, shows that 18% of young people do not believe life is worth living anymore.
An overwhelming pressure from social media platforms like Instagram and Twitter has said to be the cause of young people feeling low.

Nearly 60% of young people think that social media creates an “overwhelming pressure” to succeed.
