Often connected, rarely relaxed : A qualitative literature study about young people’s experiences of social media in relation to their mental health. (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Sociala medier har under de senaste åren blivit en stor del av ungdomars vardagliga liv. Parallellt med detta har den psykiska ohälsan hos ungdomar ökat. Klinisk erfarenhet har visat att vårdpersonal uttrycker okunskap om vilken betydelse som användandet av sociala medier kan ha relaterat till ungdomars psykiska hälsa. Detta leder till osäkerhet inför hur de bör förhålla sig till patienters användande av sociala medier. Syfte: Syftet med denna litteraturstudie var att beskriva ungdomars erfarenheter av sociala medier relaterat till psykisk hälsa.

Metod: Sex kvalitativa artiklar och två artiklar med mixad metod har analyserats med inspiration av kvalitativ innehållsanalys.

Resultat: I resultatet framgår det att ungdomars erfarenheter av sociala medier relaterat till psykisk hälsa handlar om att känna sig utsatt, känna sig otillräcklig, känna stress samt känna gemenskap.

Slutsats: Genom en sammanställning av kvalitativa forskningsresultat kan vi påvisa att ungdomars erfarenheter av sociala medier relaterat till psykisk hälsa varierar. Studien kan ge sjuksköterskor en inblick i hur och på vilket sätt som sociala medier medverkar i ungdomars liv. Detta för att kunna ge stöd och förstå dem i deras sammanhang.

Abstract [en]

Background: During modern times, social media has become a large part of young people’s everyday life. In parallel to this, their mental health has rapidly grown worse. Clinical experience has shown that healthcare personnel express a lack of knowledge about how social media affect youth and their mental health. This leads to an uncertainty about how they are supposed to handle or adapt to patients’ use of it.Purpose: The purpose with this study was to describe young people’s experiences of social media in relation to mental health.

Method: Six qualitative articles and two mixed methods articles have been analyzed with inspiration from qualitative content analysis.

Results: The result shows that young people’s experiences of social media related to mental health are feelings such as feeling vulnerable, feeling inadequate, feeling stress and sense of belonging.

Conclusion: Using a summary of qualitative research results this study has shown that youth’s experiences of social media in relation to mental health vary. This study can provide nurses with an insight into how and in which ways social media affect youth. In turn, this can provide them with alternatives to support and understand the patients in their contexts.
