Perspective Adult children with mental illness : A qualitative interview study (English)
Abstract [sv]

Psykisk ohälsa hos unga vuxna ökar och behovet av vårdinsatser blir större. Anhöriga ses numer som en resurs i dessa vårdinsatser. Trots detta visar tidigare forskning att samhällets insatser för att främja anhörigkontakterna delvis är undermålig. Kommunikation och samarbete mellan anhöriga och vårdpersonal är ett område som lyfts fram som ett av problemområdena. Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka och skapa en djupare förståelse om föräldraskap till barn med långvarig psykisk sjukdom. Detta genom att beskriva hur vårdpersonalen upplever mötet med föräldrar till barn med psykisk sjukdom.

         Studien utfördes med intervjuer av fyra personer som arbetade inom olika vårdinrättningar som kom i kontakt med föräldrar till vuxna barn med psykisk sjukdom och analyserades genom kvalitativ innehållsanalys. Resultaten redovisades med tre teman: Vårdpersonalens perspektiv, Förälders perspektiv och Framtid. Resultatet visade på problematiken kring föräldrarnas misstro gentemot vårdinsatser men jämfört med tidigare forskning framkom att alla fyra intervjupersoner upplevde till största delen bra möten med dessa föräldrar. Återkommande faktorer som skulle kunna förbättra eventuella problem framkommer där tid, information och kunskaper är viktiga komponenter. Resultaten visade även betydelsen av bra arbetsmiljö och vikten av en professionell chef.

Abstract

Mental illness amongst young adults is increasing and the need for care interventions becomes greater. Relatives are now seen as a resource in these care interventions. In spite of this, previous research shows that society's efforts to promote contacts with relatives are partly substandard. Communication and cooperation between relatives and healthcare professionals is an area highlighted as one of the problem areas. The purpose of this study was to investigate and create a deeper understanding about parenting to children with long-term mental illness. This is by describing how health professionals experience the meeting with parents of children with mental illness.  

        The study was conducted with interviews of four people working in different health care institutions that met parents of adult children with mental illness and were analyzed through qualitative content analysis. The results were reported with three themes: Healthcare professionals ' perspective, Parent's perspective and future. The result showed the problem of parental distrust in care, but was in relation to previous research relatively positive, that all four respondents experienced mostly good meetings with these parents. Recurring factors that could improve potential problems arise where time, information and knowledge are important components. The results also showed the importance of a good working environment and the importance of a professional manager.
