Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examine people with professional experiences involving young men’s tendency to seek professional help, and also to analyse male standards and masculinities influence, due to the high statistics of mental illness and suicide among young men in Sweden. We used a qualitative method and obtained the material by semistructured interviews. Four participants, from three different organisations, participated in this study and shared their perception about the current situation. The material was examined through a thematic analysis. The result showed that male standards and masculinities are a contributing factor to why young men are reluctant to seek professional help, but also why it is more complicated for young men then young women to show their emotional needs. The informants were however clear on emphasising that this is far from the only reason and that committing suicide is an issue which goes beyond gender.
