    Support for young informal carers of persons with mental illness: A mixed-method study2013In: Issues in Mental Health Nursing, ISSN 0161-2840, E-ISSN 1096-4673, Vol. 34, no 8, p. 611-618Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to explore how young (16-25 year old) informal carers of a person with a mental illness experience and use support. In a mixed method approach, we interviewed 12 young carers, and 241 completed a self-administered questionnaire. While the young carers strive to maintain control, their main support seems to be others in their lives, who often define the situation differently. The carers said web-support, counseling, and group counseling might be helpful, yet very few had any professional support. Young carers are greatly in need of support and it should be provided.

    Evaluation of a Web-Based Training Program for Professional Carers Working With People With Learning Disabilities and Challenging Behavior: A Pilot Study with SSED-Design.2016In: Issues in Mental Health Nursing, ISSN 0161-2840, E-ISSN 1096-4673, Vol. 37, no 10, p. 734-743Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The interaction between people with intellectual disabilities and professional carers is often influenced by communicative difficulties contributing challenging behaviours. The aims of this study were to evaluate to a web-based training program aimed at improving carers' abilities to interact with people with learning disabilities who exhibit challenging behaviours and to explore carers' experiences of participating in such a program. A single-subject experimental design and mixed methods were used to integrate qualitative and quantitative data. Triangulation of questionnaires, interviews with carers, and assessments of one woman's behaviour was performed. The participants were professional carers aged 20 to 55 years. The web-based training program increased carers' abilities to handle challenging behaviours and decreased challenging behaviours in daily care. The program improved the opportunities to offer training to carers who work in community-based accommodations with limited time to receive training.

    Nurses' Experiences in using Physical Activity as Complementary Treatment in Patients with Schizophrenia.2018In: Issues in Mental Health Nursing, ISSN 0161-2840, E-ISSN 1096-4673, Vol. 39, no 7, p. 600-607Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    INTRODUCTION: Schizophrenia is a common disease with a high risk of comorbidity in both psychiatric and somatic diseases. Physical activity is proven effective in reducing symptoms of schizophrenia and increasing overall health. Still it is not used systematically in the care of persons with schizophrenia.

    AIM: The aim of this study is to describe nurses' experience, including personal motivation, in using physical activity as complementary treatment in patients with schizophrenia.

    METHOD: Interviews in three focus groups with 12 participating nurses were conducted. Qualitative content analysis was used to analyze data.

    RESULTS: Physical activity was commonly used. Although several nurses signaled positive patient response, i.e. less anxiety and better quality of sleep, the overall consensus was an uncertainty regarding the benefits. It was perceived as non-evidence based form of intervention.

    CONCLUSION: The uncertainty of the benefits of physical activity is evident in nursing staff and poses a resistance to implement systematic physical activity as a complementary treatment in schizophrenia. A new awareness of evidence based nursing is suggested to promote a wider and more receptive attitude to reduce patient vulnerability in persons with schizophrenia.

    Children's view of a major depression affecting a parent in the family2011In: Issues in Mental Health Nursing, ISSN 0161-2840, E-ISSN 1096-4673, Vol. 32, no 9, p. 560-567Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study aims to elucidate, from the children's perspective, the meaning for family life of a parent suffering a major depression disorder. Eight children and young adults were interviewed. Phenomenological-hermeneutic analysis generated two themes: (1) "Being a rescuing observer" with the subthemes, "Being attentive" and "Being considerate," and (2) "Being a frustrated observer" with the subthemes, "feeling discomfort" and "being out of it." Children's lives alternate between responsibility and loneliness as they wait for reciprocity in family life to return to normal. Children need support in order to manage their sense of responsibility and loneliness adequately.

    Older persons' lived experiences of depression and self-management2013In: Issues in Mental Health Nursing, ISSN 0161-2840, E-ISSN 1096-4673, Vol. 34, no 10, p. 757-764Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Mental ill-health, such as depression in the elderly, is a complex issue that is influenced by the life-world perspective of older persons. Their self-management ability should be strengthened based on an understanding of their situation, perspectives, and vulnerability. The aim of this study was to explore and increase understanding of old persons' lived experiences of depression and self-management using an interpretative explorative design. Understanding was developed by means of hermeneutic interpretation. One theme, Relationships and Togetherness, and four subthemes, A Sense of Carrying a Shoulder Bag, Walking on Eggshells, Holding the Reins, and Estrangement-a Loss of Togetherness, emerged. A collaborative approach can be important for empowering older persons through self-development and management. Although the findings of the present study cannot be considered conclusive or definitive, they nevertheless contribute new knowledge of older persons' lived experiences of depression in everyday life. © 2013 Informa Healthcare USA, Inc.

    Until Death Do Us Part: Adult Relatives' Experiences of Everyday Life Close to Persons with Mental Ill-Health2016In: Issues in Mental Health Nursing, ISSN 0161-2840, E-ISSN 1096-4673, Vol. 37, no 8, p. 602-608Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study illuminates adult relatives' experiences of everyday life close to a person with mental ill-health. The study was based on nine diaries and four narrative interviews with relatives of people with mental ill-health. Data were subjected to qualitative content analysis. The participants experienced everyday life as a constant fight, for better and for worse, with psychiatric care. They were fighting for the mentally ill person's right to care; sometimes they felt resigned, but yet they had a confidence in the care. Their mission in life was to sacrifice themselves, meaning that they felt indispensable and became lonely and socially isolated. They considered their mission to last until death set them apart because they were keeping a family secret, and had great worries about the future. We conclude that relatives experience a two-folded stigma in living close to a person with mental ill-health and in becoming lonely and socially isolated.

    Challenges Highlighted During Peer Supervision by Mental Health Nurses and Social Workers Recently Trained as Case Managers in Sweden2015In: Issues in Mental Health Nursing, ISSN 0161-2840, E-ISSN 1096-4673, Vol. 36, no 10, p. 809-816Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study looked at 13 mental health nurses and social workers who were recently trained as case managers (CMs) and the work-related challenges they faced in community mental health services. Data were collected during ten peer supervisions sessions. Participants expressed pride and enthusiasm about their new function as CMs, but they also acknowledged that their new position meant they had to confront existing systems and posed several challenges, including organizational hindrances, economic prerequisites, nominated administrators, role function, and model fidelity. We conclude that the existing organizations seemed to be unprepared to hold and facilitate more person-centered approaches, such as designating CMs. The model fidelity is important, but has to be flexible according to clients' daily state.

    Nurses' Experiences of Assessing Suicide Risk in Specialised Mental Health Outpatient Care in Rural Areas2018In: Issues in Mental Health Nursing, ISSN 0161-2840, E-ISSN 1096-4673, Vol. 39, no 7, p. 554-560Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study describes nurses' experiences of assessing suicide risk in specialised mental health outpatient care in rural areas in Sweden. We used a qualitative, descriptive design based on twelve interviews that were subjected to qualitative content analysis. The results showed that the nurses felt anguish due to a lack of control. They expressed uncertainty and loneliness, and they struggled with ethical issues and organisational challenges. Having the sole responsibility to assess suicide risk can increase a person's emotional vulnerability and moral stress. Consequently, in order to prevent ill health among these nurses, there is a need for a tolerant work climate and an organisation that provides support to its employees. Assessing suicide risk is a demanding task within mental health outpatient care. Further, nurses operating in rural areas have to initiate and conduct assessments on their own, and they are, together with the physician in charge, also held individually responsible for their assessments. Consequently, it is important to describe nurses' experiences of how they deal with questions concerning suicide risk. Their experiences can foster awareness of the responsibility and the ethical standpoints related to assessing suicide risk, can help outline the need for further education and supervision, and can improve support from co-workers and management.

    The Meaning of the Lived Experience of Lifestyle Changes for People with Severe Mental Illness.2017In: Issues in Mental Health Nursing, ISSN 0161-2840, E-ISSN 1096-4673, Vol. 38, no 9, p. 717-725Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to elucidate the meaning of the lived experience of lifestyle changes as perceived by people with severe mental illness (SMI). People with SMI who have experience in managing lifestyle changes were interviewed (n = 10). The interviews were analyzed with a phenomenological hermeneutic approach. The findings reveal three themes: (1) struggling with inner and outer limitations, (2) on one's own but together with others and (3) longing for living a life in harmony. The meaning of lifestyle changes can be understood as a person's internal and external endeavors to make well-considered decisions about lifestyle changes. Support should focus on strengthening the person's self-efficacy and should be based on the person's experiences.

    Experiences of Major Depression: Individuals’ Perspectiveson the Ability to Understand and Handle the Illness2012In: Issues in Mental Health Nursing, ISSN 0161-2840, E-ISSN 1096-4673, ISSN 0161-2840 print / 1096-4673 online, Vol. 33, no 5, p. 271-279Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In all social groups, major depression is an increasingly serious

    problem in modern society. Important aspects of a person’s capacity

    for recovery are the person’s own understanding of the illness

    and the ability to use this understanding to manage the illness.

    The aim of this study is to describe how individuals with major

    depression understand their illness and use their understanding to

    handle it. Twenty participants treated in community care formajor

    depression as determined by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual

    of Mental Disorders were interviewed between February and

    June, 2008. Content analysis of the interviews revealed threemajor

    themes: (1) awakening insight, (2) strategies for understanding and

    managing, and (3) making use of understanding, each with additional

    subthemes. Individual understandings of the illness varied

    and led to differences in the ways participants were able to handle

    their depression. In clinical care it is essential to support an

    individual’s understanding of depression and his or her use of that

    understanding to handle the illness.
