There are several underlying reasons for why they do not utilize this service, e.g. a feeling of the office not being adequately staffed, that the staff do not genuinely care about them and that others that know them more closely can provide better help. The result that the pupils have good mental health does not agree with findings from previous studies, possibly due to the low number of participants in this study. (Less)
