 Adolescent’s experiences of being struck by, and living with, depression : a literature review (English)
Abstract [sv]

Under de senaste 50 åren har antalet depressiva individer ökat, och även då märkbart ökat bland den yngre generationen. Depression är en sjukdom karaktäriserad av en märkbart sänkt livskvalitet vilket sjuksköterskor bör försöka hjälpa patienten att återta och upprätthålla. Syftet med denna litteraturöversikt är att sammanställa och belysa forskning gällande ungdomars upplevelser av att drabbas av, samt leva med, depression. Resultatet bygger på fem teman vilka framkommit i samband med analysen av ungdomarnas levda berättelser; känslan av att inte känna igen sig själv, känslan av att något inte står rätt till då den ovana sinnesstämningen inte vänder, känslan av att inte kunna hantera situationen på egen hand, upplevelsen av att ta tag i situationen – att söka hjälp samt behandling – Ungdomarnas reflektioner gällande insjuknandet. Ungdomarnas upplevelser i samband med sjukdomen är något vårdpersonal bör erhålla ökad kunskap om för att på så sätt kunna arbeta utifrån en mer omfattande individanpassad omvårdnad.

Abstract [en]

During the last 50 years the amount of depressed individuals has increased, and also noticeably increased among the younger generation. Depression is a disease characterized by a noticeably decreased quality of life which is something nurses should try helping the patient to recapture and maintain. The aim of this literature review is to put together and highlight research regarding adolescents’ experiences of being struck by, and living with, depression. The result is based on five themes which has emerged in connection with the analysis of adolescents’ lived stories: the feeling of not recognizing yourself, the feeling that something is not right when the unusual state of mind is not reversing, the feeling of not being able to handle the situation on your own, the experience of dealing with the situation - seeking help and also The adolescents reflections concerning the sickening. The adolescents’ experiences in relation to the disease is something all healthcare personal should gain more knowledge about to be able to work from a more comprehensive, individually adapted care.
