Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Depression är en komplicerad sjukdom som kan medföra allvarliga problem. Symtom på depression kan variera, några av de vanligaste förekommande symtomen för en ungdom är irritation, håglöshet, trötthet, koncentrationssvårigheter och skuldkänslor. Detta kan medföra att skolarbetet påverkas negativt och hela livssituationen. Skolsköterskan har en viktig roll i arbetet för att främja den psykiska hälsan. Syfte: Syftet var att belysa skolsköterskors erfarenheter av att stödja ungdomar i åldern 13-19 år med depression. Metod: Åtta intervjuer genomfördes med skolsköterskor verksamma i grundskola och gymnasieskola. Studien genomfördes i två län och i fem kommuner. Data analyserades med manifest kvalitativ innehållsanalys med induktiv ansats. Resultat: Ur analysen av datamaterialet framkom fyra kategorier, öppenhet för elevens behov, bygga upp elevens självbild, samordna insatser och känsla av otillräcklighet. Kategorier belyses med underkategorier och citat. Konklusion: Resultatet visar att skolsköterskor har en öppenhet mot elever med depression och förtroende utgör grunden för ett gott samarbete med eleven. Resultatet kan bidra till att utveckla och förbättra skolsköterskors möjligheter att ge stöd till deprimerade elever. Det kan även utgöra en grund för fortsatt diskussion om hur skolsköterskans arbetssituation bör förbättras för att ge mer resurser till deprimerade elever.

Conclusion: The results show that nurses have an openness to students with depression and confidence is the basis for a good working relationship with the student.
