Abstract [en]

Background: Research suggests that an unaccompanied refugee child is at greater risk of mental health problems. School nurses`work should be characterized by a salutogenic perspective and promoting mental health is important for the well-being of unaccompanied refugee children.

Aim: The purpose of the study was to elucidate the school nurses`experiences with promoting mental health of unaccompanied refugee children.

Method: A qualitative method was used in the study and analysis was conducted by using a qualitative content analysis. Eight school nurses from schools in Stockholm County were interviewed through semi structured email interviews.

Results: The study resulted in three categories and six subcategories. The categories were: to imparting knowledge based on needs, to cooperate  and to creating conditions for promoting mental health.

Conclusion: The results show that school nurses are significant persons in the school to promote mental health and elucidate how it is possible to implement health promotion work, the importance of health conversation and school nurses`cooperation with others. It appears that health promotion work with mental health is facilitated if conditions in terms of better organization and coordination exist.
