Mental health in adolescents. A qualitative study on the school counselors’ experiences and responses. (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna kvalitativa studie syftar till att ge ökad kunskap angående skolkuratorers upplevelser, i arbetet med ungdomar och deras psykiska hälsa. I Sverige är den psykiska hälsan det största hotet främst för ungdomar. Kuratorer är en yrkesgrupp som möter dessa unga dagligen i en miljö där de tillbringar mycket tid, i skolan. Data samlades in genom semistrukturerade intervjuer, gjorda på sex skolkuratorer med en arbetslivserfarenhet på genomsnittligen åtta år. Kuratorerna som intervjuades var yrkesverksamma inom olika gymnasieskolor. Resultaten belyste kuratorernas yrkesroll och deras arbete med ungdomars psykiska hälsa. Vidare tyder resultaten på att den upplevda psykiska hälsan hos ungdomar inte har försämrats över tid. Trots detta fanns stor tyngd på skolkuratorer gällande behovet av individuella samtal och på grund av detta brister i att arbeta förebyggande. Denna studie bidrar till en djupare kunskap om hur skolkuratorer upplever och bemöter ungdomars psykiska hälsa, och vilka åtgärdsinsatser som tillämpas vid uppstående problem eller ohälsa.

Abstract [en]

The present study is a qualitative study that aims to give increased knowledge of the school counselors’ experiences in working with young people and their psychological health. In Sweden, mental health is the main threats mainly among young people. Counselors in school is the profession that meets these young people daily in an environment where they spend most time, in school. Data was collected through semi structured interviews with six counselors, with work experience on average eight years. Counselors interviewed were active within different high schools. The results highlight the counselors’ professional role and their work with young people. Furthermore, the results indicate that the perceived mental health of young people has not deteriorated over time. Despite this, there was a great deal of emphasis on school counselors regarding the need for individual counseling and because of this there was a lack of preventive work. This study contributes to a deeper knowledge of how counselors experience and meet young people's psychological health, and what are the applying actions in case of problems or mental illness
