In this paper we look at some of the consequences of the collapse of the youth labour market in terms of the psychological well‐being of young people with different transitional experiences. We use the General Health Questionnaire (GHQ) to compare the psychologicalwell‐being ofa nationally representative sample ofScottish 17year‐olds in a range of education and labour market situations.
