Abstract [sv]

Stress är en riskfaktor för hälsan och blir allt vanligare i de yngre befolkningsgrupperna. Syftet med föreliggande arbete var att beskriva skolsköterskors, mentorers, lärare och kuratorers uppfattningar av stressförekomst bland ungdomar i årskurs åtta. Studien var baserad på en enkätundersökning. Resultatet som framkom var att deltagarna uppfattade att ungdomarna var stressade. Skolan tolkades som den största stressfaktorn. Huvudvärk ansågs vara det vanligaste symtomet. Åtgärder som föreslogs för att hantera stress var, att ungdomarna behövde hjälp att planera och prioritera sitt skolarbete. Ett ökat stöd hemifrån samt hjälp att begränsa fritidsaktiviteter och en ökad samverkan mellan lärare ansågs även vara viktigt. Slutsatsen blev att stress bland ungdomar i årskurs åtta förekom. Insatser inom skolans organisation angående stressprevention bör ge redskap och kunskap till ungdomar om stresshantering. För att kunna öka möjligheten till en bättre hälsa bland ungdomar ansåg vi att samverkan var ett område att studera närmare.

Abstract [en]

Stress is a risk factor for the health and becomes all the more common in the younger groups of the population. The aim with the work in question was to describe school nurses’, mentors’, teachers’ and school welfare officers’ views of stress occurrence among youths in eighth grade. The study was based on an opinion poll. The result showed that the participants considered the young people as being stressed. School was looked upon as the largest stress factor. Headache was considered as the most common symptom. Measures proposed to handle stress were that the young people needed help to plan and prioritize their school work. An increased support from home and help to limit leisure-time activities and an increased cooperation between teachers were also regarded as important. The conclusion was that stress among youths in eighth grade occurred. Initiatives within the organization of school concerning stress prevention should give tools and knowledge to young people about stress handling. In order to increase the possibility for a better health among young people we were of the opinion that cooperation was one area to study closer.
