The well-being of migrant youth (English)
Abstract [sv]

Migration är ett aktuellt ämne i dagens samhälle som medför stora förändringar i människorsliv. Migrationsprocessen kan leda till ökad risk för psykisk ohälsa och en bristande hälsorelaterad livskvalitet, beroende på omständigheterna som en migrant har i mottagarlandet. Syftet med studien är att beskriva välbefinnande hos migrantungdomar som har migrerat från mellanöstern till Sverige. Studien tillämpar en socialpsykologisk ansats genom teorierna symbolisk interaktionism, KASAM och välbefinnande. De tio respondenterna som deltog i studien intervjuades med hjälp av kvalitativa semistrukturerade intervjuer. Urvalet var begränsat till respondenter som hade ett ursprung från mellanöstern och ska ha bott i Sverige i minst fem år. Studiens resultat visar att de flesta respondenterna upplever en form av exkludering, vilket medförde att respondenterna isolerade sig själva. Detta i sin tur har påverkat deras självkänsla och välmående. Vidare beskrev respondenter att anpassningsprocessen har varit utmanande i början av ankomsten till mottagarlandet, vilket har visat negativa effekter på respondenternas välbefinnande och hälsa.

Abstract [en]

Migration is a contemporary social issue that brings about major changes for people. Migration often carries several mental health risk factors , usually based on circumstances faced by migrants in the receiving country. The purpose of the study is to describe the well-being of immigrant youth who have migrated from the Middle East to Sweden. The study adopts a social psychology approach using theories of symbolic interactionism, sense of coherence and well-being. The ten respondents who took part in the study were interviewed with the help of qualitative semi structured interviews. Selection criteria for the study is limited to respondents who had Middle eastern origins and must have lived in Sweden for at least five years. The results of the study show that most respondents experience a form of exclusion, which led them to isolate themselves. This in turn has affected their self-esteemand well-being. Furthermore, the results also showed that the respondents describe that the adaptation process has been challenging at the beginning of the arrival in the recipient country, which has shown potential negative impacts on the respondent’s well-being and health.
