New figures from the Prince's Trust reveal that 13 per cent of young people aged 16 - 25 say they are too anxious to leave their house - a figure that doubles to 26 per cent for those young people who are unemployed.
The report indicates many young people have problems with their confidence.
Consultant psychiatrist Dr. Andrea Danese and Abigail Holsborough, who is living with depression, joined Headline London to discuss the matter.
Dr Danese talks through the report, which shows the problems young people face simply tackling every day life and explains why the problems are worse for those who are unemployed.
Abigail shares her own personal experiences and gives an insight into why so many people may be troubled. She describes how moving to university prompted further problems and also how becoming an adult meant the level of care she recieved from the NHS changed dramatically.
