Inflation has hit every segment of society hard but it seems that youths in particular are having a tough time grappling with it. The TODAY Youth Survey 2022 found one in three youths citing cost of living as their main source of mental health struggle.

Is there adequate support at work and in the community now that there is greater awareness of mental health issues?

However, the debate over LGBTQ issues is unlikely to simmer down with society remaining divided on related issues such as same-sex marriages. What is the way forward for society to manage the different viewpoints?

Youths, on the other hand, reject such characterisations. So what is it that drives youths at work and what are they looking for at the workplace?
