The research also found that 79% of 18 to 24 year olds who are "workless" due to ill health only have qualifications at GCSE level or below.

Off the back of the study, the Resolution Foundation, which campaigns for better living standards for those on low and middle incomes, is calling for better mental health support in colleges and sixth forms, and for more to be done to make it so that less young people leave compulsory education with low qualification levels.

Gary Siva, from Portsmouth, runs online mental wellbeing platform Zumos, which is used by many schools and aims to teach young people resilience and mindfulness skills early in life.

Mr Siva said social media has been a factor in making the need to help younger people with their mental health more urgent.

Children look to their friends on social media for validation, as opposed to themselves or even their families, he said, while problems that would previously have stopped at the school gates, such as bullying, do not now.

Many of the study's findings are based on the Labour Force Survey, which has recently been stopped by the Office for National Statistics because the numbers taking part had fallen.
