Abstract [en]

There is an increase in mental illness among children and adolescents through several reports, including through the social welfare and public health authorities. Symptoms seen include sleep disorders, anxiety, bodily pain and stress-related problems. Previous research shows that the increase in mental health is greatest among girls 16-18 years. Stress in a small amount has been seen to contribute to positive effects. However, among young people, there has been a direct negative link between stress and the brain, in which the reward system has suffered. A quantitative study was conducted at a high school in Stockholm. The purpose of the study was to search for stress symptoms in relation to the school and correlations between stress symptoms based on academic, family and socio-economic factors. Variables that were also investigated in this study were correlation between stomach ache, headache, psychosomatic symptoms and school. The survey was conducted on a total of 35 out of 61 students, 60% of boys 40% of girls aged 15-16 in grades 8-9. The result shows stress among the students at school as well as several correlations between stressors in the students and gender differences.
