A new study has found that young people are more stressed than ever.

The research, which was conducted by children’s mental health non-profit YoungMinds, surveyed over 2,000 young people between the ages of 11 and 25. More than half said they believed they would be a “failure” if they didn’t succeed academically, and many others showed signs of serious body image issues. 42% of the female respondents sad they have intentionally skipped a meal in order to lose weight, compared to 35% of males.

Half of the total respondents reported being bullied by peers and a third said they weren’t sure where to go to get help for their depression and stress.
