Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to reach knowledge and increase the understanding of high school students’ experiences of school climate, achievements in school and their reflections on their relations within and outside of school. The relations included in this study was relations to teachers, classmates, friends outside school and relations to family members. The purpose of this study was to highlight in what way school and relations affects the adolescents’ mental health. The study is based on 6 qualitative interviews with female high school students in a smaller municipality in Sweden. The interviews were analyzed using meaning interpretation. Main results show that both achievements in school and relations affect the adolescents’ mental health considerably. The results indicate that all aspects considered in the study, school climate, school achievements, relations to teachers, classmates, friends and family members, relate to and affect each other. Furthermore the results show that all these aspects have an impact on the adolescents’ mental health in different ways. The conclusion is that close relationships and the attachment within those affect the adolescents’ self-images and their identity and therefore have an impact on their mental health.
