Varför söker svenska samer vård i Norge?: om kultur och kontext i samisk psykiatri

Abstract [sv]

Samerna är urfolket i norra Skandinavien och på Kolahalvön. De svenska samernas hälsa är generellt god, men liksom bland andra urfolk i Arktis har problem med psykisk ohälsa och självmord ökat under senare år, särskilt bland männen. Artikeln belyser olika perspektiv på kultur och kontext som kan ha betydelse för hur svenska samer uppfattar möten med psykiatrin, och varför en del hellre söker sig till Norge, där samisk kultursensitivitet integreras i vården. Maktdimensionen är central för att förstå både dessa problem och orsakerna bakom att Sverige underlåtit att agera på de konkreta förbättringsförslag som lagts fram av Förenta Nationerna.

Abstract [en]

The Sámi is the indigenous people of northern Scandinavia and the Kola Peninsula.The health of the Swedish Sámi is generally good, but problems with mental ill-health and suicide has increased in later years, especially among the men, as is also the case among other indigenous peoples in the Arctic. The article sheds light on different perspectives on culture and context that might be of relevance for how Swedish Sámi perceives psychiatric care, and why some travel to Norway, where (Sámi) culture sensitivity is integrated in care. The dimension of power is central for understanding both these problems and why Sweden is not taking action on the proposals for improvement that has been suggested by the United Nations.
