Mental health issues are increasing for young people, though it is not clear whether this is due to higher incidence or better awareness and diagnosis. Mental health is closely related to other youth issues and can both be an outcome of inequalities and a source of inequality itself. Risk factors for mental health issues include disability and long-term illness, family problems, relationship problems with peers and heavy social media use.

What have been the major developments in quality of life and public services in Europe in recent years, as captured by research into these areas in Eurofound’s work programme for 2017–2020? This flagship publication provides a synthesis of the main findings on several key topics, based, in part, on European Quality of Life Survey data. It maps developments and perceptions regarding the following: trust in institutions and social cohesion; access to and quality of health and care services; the impact of digitalisation on social services; access to services for young people; and measures aimed at integrating refugees. While the report highlights many challenges and emerging issues for public services, it also showcases a number of positive experiences with the involvement of client groups in the design of services and take-up of new technologies.
Quali sono stati i principali sviluppi della qualità della vita e dei servizi pubblici in Europa negli ultimi anni, così come rilevati dalla ricerca in questi settori nel programma di lavoro di Eurofound per il periodo 2017-2020? Questa pubblicazione faro offre una sintesi delle principali conclusioni su vari temi chiave, in parte basandosi sui dati dell’Indagine europea sulla qualità della vita. Essa traccia gli sviluppi e le percezioni riguardanti: la fiducia nelle istituzioni e la coesione sociale; l’accesso ai servizi sanitari e assistenziali e la loro qualità; l’impatto della digitalizzazione sui servizi sociali; l’accesso ai servizi per i giovani e le misure volte all’integrazione dei rifugiati. Pur evidenziando numerose sfide e problemi emergenti per i servizi pubblici, la relazione presenta anche una serie di esperienze positive con il coinvolgimento di categorie di utenti nella progettazione dei servizi e nella diffusione delle nuove tecnologie.
