Mental Health, Disability Pensions and Youth in the Nordic Countries More young people than before are at risk of long-term exclusion. Young people's mental health must be seen in relation to their prospects on the labour market, their situation in education and training, and social and economic changes of a structural nature in society. The issue of young people who are not in employment, education or training is attracting political concern and attention in all the Nordic countries. Youth guarantees and training programmes in various forms are examples of measures aimed at helping young people gain a foothold on the labour market.
