Mental illness among students : A qualitative study (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Varannan student upplever psykisk ohälsa i relation till studietiden vilket innebär nya påfrestningar som kräver anpassning i den enskilda studentens levnadssätt. Stigmatisering påverkar individens livsvärld och medför att studenter med psykisk ohälsa inte söker vård. Studenthälsovården saknar resurser gällande identifiering av psykisk ohälsa i tidigt skeende varvid detta förorsakar lidande och försämring i den enskilde studentens fortsatta hälsotillstånd. Sjuksköterskor upplever bristande kunskap om psykisk ohälsa vilket medför svårigheter att bemöta och ge vård. Vid utebliven behandling av psykisk ohälsa ökar självmordsrisk. Syfte: Att belysa studenters upplevelser av psykisk ohälsa. Metod: Studien baseras på en allmän litteraturöversikt med en kvalitativ ansats, där 13 vetenskapliga artiklar granskades. En litteraturöversikt användes för att analysera datan. Resultat: Tre områden identifieras; Svårigheter att leva upp till förväntningar och krav, Att inte ha kontroll i sin vardag och Upplevelser av social stigmatisering. Slutsats: Det är väsentligt att uppmärksamma psykisk ohälsa för att reducera stigmatiseringen och nå fram till de utsatta studenterna. Både studenter och sjuksköterskor är i behov av stöd och vägledning.

There is a lack of knowledge on the topic and failure to correctly educate nurses which creates uncertainty in how they could and should respond. Aim: The purpose of this study illuminate students' experiences of mental illness. Method: There were thirteen scientific articles chosen and also examined. A literature review was used to analyse the data. Result: Three areas are identified, Difficulties living up to expectations and demands, not having control of their everyday lives. The experience of social stigma. Conclusion: The study highlights the importance of paying attention to mental illness as there is a need to reduce stigma and to reach out to students with mental illness. Students and nurses are in need of support and guidance.
