Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka sambandet mellan socialt stöd, subjektivtvälmående och depressiva symtom för personer med ADHD. Tidigare forskning har funnitpositiva samband mellan socialt stöd och subjektivt välmående samt negativa samband mellansocialt stöd och depressiva symtom hos den generella populationen. Dessa sambandförväntades också återspeglas i denna studie för personer med ADHD. Sambandetundersöktes med en enkätstudie och deltagarna bestod av personer diagnostiserade medADHD (n=218) i olika åldrar som var medlemmar i stödgrupper på Facebook. Ävenkönsskillnader för variablerna undersöktes. Resultatet visade på en stark positiv korrelationmellan socialt stöd och subjektivt välmående och en stark negativ korrelation mellan socialtstöd och depressiva symtom, samt att socialt stöd predicerade både subjektivt välmående ochdepressiva symtom. Resultatet visade även att män och kvinnor tenderar att uppvisa liknandenivåer av socialt stöd, subjektivt välmående och depressiva symtom. Sammanfattningsvistenderar personer med ADHD som har gott socialt stöd uppleva låga nivåer av depressivasymtom och höga nivåer av subjektivt välmående. Dessa resultat är viktiga för de indikerar attde problem som personer med ADHD har i vardagslivet potentiellt kan reduceras av attpersonerna känner att de har stöd av människor runt dem.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to examine the relation between social support, subjectivewell-being and depressive symptoms for people with ADHD. Earlier research has foundpositive associations between social support and subjective well-being, as well as negativeassociations between social support and depressive symptoms for the general population.These associations were anticipated to be found for people with ADHD. The associationswere examined with a survey and the participants consisted of people diagnosed with ADHD(n=218) in different ages that were members of support groups on Facebook. Genderdifferences for each variable were also examined. The result showed a strong positiveassociation between social support and subjective well-being, as well as a strong negativeassociation between social support and depressive symptoms. The result also indicated thatboth male and female tend to show similar levels of social support, subjective well-being anddepressive symptoms. In conclusion people with an ADHD diagnosis who have good socialsupport tend to show few depressive symptoms and report elevated levels of subjective wellbeing. These results are important since they indicate that the problems people with ADHD experience daily may be reduced if they feel that they are supported by the people around them.
