Abstract [sv]

Barn som lider av depression är ovanligt men i tonåren ökar sjukdomen markant. Primärvården blir ofta den första vårdkontakten. Vårdpersonal inom primärvården känner inte alltid till symtomen för depression hos ungdomar. Om tonåringar inte får hjälp med sin depression kan det leda till sämre livskvalitet och försämrad prestation i skolan. Syftet med studien är att undersöka hur primärvården kan identifiera depression hos ungdomar. Studien är en deskriptiv litteraturstudie med syfte att granska litteratur i det valda ämnet. Resultatet visar att screening för att identifiera ungdomsdepression inom primärvården är att rekommendera. Samtal är ytterligare en metod att identifiera depression. Besöket i primärvården skapar ett bra tillfälle att samtala med tonåringen om mental hälsa och depression. Om inte screening används finns det många tecken på depression hos ungdomar som primärvården kan observera. Det finns dessutom både skillnader och likheter mellan depressionstecknen hos pojkar och flickor i tonåren.

Abstract [en]

Children who suffer from depression are uncommon, but in adolescence the disease increases remarkably. Primary care is often the first health care contact. Health professionals in primary care do not always know the symptoms of depression in adolescence. If teens do not get help with their depression it can lead to lower quality of life and poorer performance in school. The aim of this study is to examine how primary care can identify depression in adolescents. The studay is a descriptive literature review aimed to examine the literature in the chosen subject. The results show that screening to identify youth depression in primary care is recommended. Conversation is an additional method to identify depression. The visit to primary care creates a good opportunity to talk with the teenager about mental health and depression. If no screening is used, there are many signs of depression in adolescents that primary care can observe. There are both similarities and differences between depression signs in boys and girls in their teens.
