"More than a third (36 per cent) often feel anxious about everyday situations, rising to 52 per cent of NEETs," the report issued in January highlighted.

NEET is an acronym for young people aged between 16 and 25, who are not in employment, education or training. The term is widely used in the United Kingdom, Japan, South Korea, Canada, Spain and Mexico.

The Prince's Trust Macquarie Youth Index 2015 report revealed that jobless youths in Britain are socially isolated, in particular 46 percent of unemployed young people avoid making new acquaintances and about 40 percent can hardly "make eye contact with people".

The report indicated that anxiety among the unemployed young people impacted their ability to sleep well, eat properly, look after their health and even prevented them from finding a job.

About six out of 10 unemployed people interviewed said their anxiety caused them to experience sleep disturbances, while 51 percent of NEETs could not find the strength to look for a job, the Prince's Trust survey revealed.

In total about 2,265 young Britons took part in a poll, carried out by the Prince's Trust in November and December 2014.
