Stressed-out in Salford

A study of 172 15- and 16-year-olds preparing to take their GCSEs in Salford, Manchester has found that one in four of them said that they suffered from high levels of stress caused by coursework. Although many of them said that they listened to music, watched TV or played sport to reduce their stress levels 30% said that they drank alcohol, 18% said that they smoked and 6% said that they had used drugs to cope with stress.
