Abstract (Swedish)
Den psykiska ohälsan bland ungdomar har ökat de senaste decennierna. Ungdomsmottagningen är en viktig instans i främjandet av ungdomars psykiska hälsa samt i förebyggandet av psykisk ohälsa. Det är därmed väsentligt att den psykosociala verksamheten på ungdomsmottagningen anpassas till besöksgruppen samt dess behov av stöd. Syftet med studien var att kartlägga besöksgruppen hos den psykosociala personalen på ungdomsmottagningen i Region Skåne. Detta genomfördes utifrån två huvudfrågor som dels handlade om vilken besöksgruppen hos den psykosociala personalen är och dels om vilken inverkan levnadsvillkor och sociodemografiska faktorer har på ungdomars psykiska hälsa. En enkätundersökning genomfördes och enkäten som besvarades av 232 ungdomar... (More)

En enkätundersökning genomfördes och enkäten som besvarades av 232 ungdomar mätte psykisk hälsa utifrån självskattningsformuläret Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS). Även levnadsvillkor och sociodemografiska faktorer samt ungdomens kontakt med ungdomsmottagningen undersöktes. I resultatet kunde könsskillnader i självskattad psykisk hälsa samt könsskillnader i upplevt socialt stöd konstateras. Sammanfattningsvis fastslogs att de skillnader i psykisk hälsa utifrån levnadsvillkor och sociodemografiska faktorer som kunde urskiljas var relativt små. Besöksgruppens psykiska hälsa var således i hög grad oberoende av faktorer såsom ålder, antal besök på ungdomsmottagningen, socialt nätverk, HBTQ, bostadsort samt klass. (Less)
Abstract
Mental ill-health among adolescents has increased over the past decades. The youth clinic is an important instance in promoting mental health and preventing mental ill-health. Hence, it is important to adjust the psychosocial work to the visit group and its needs of support. The purpose of this study was to chart the visit group at the psychosocial staff at the youth clinic in Region Skåne. This was conducted through questions concerning the visit group and its characteristics and the influence of living conditions and sociodemographic factors on mental health among adolescents. A questionnaire was handed out and responded by 232 adolescents. The questionnaire measured mental health based on the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale... (More)

A questionnaire was handed out and responded by 232 adolescents. The questionnaire measured mental health based on the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale self-report instrument (HADS). Moreover, living conditions, sociodemographic factors and the contact between the adolescent and the youth clinic was examined. The results showed gender differences concerning self-reported mental health, but also concerning perceived social support. In conclusion, the differences in mental health based on living conditions and sociodemographic factors found were relatively small. The visit groups’ mental health was to a high extent independent from factors such as age, number of visits at the youth clinic, social network, HBTQ, place of residence and social class. (Less)
