Abstract [sv]

Ungdomars och unga vuxnas psykiska problem har varit ett omdiskuterat ämne i samhällsdebatten. Rapportervisar att detta fortfarande är ett problem i Sverige och i många länder runt om i Europa (Socialstyrelsen, 2009),(Wessel Andersson, Bjørngaard, Kaspersen, Wang, Skre, & Dahl, 2010). Könsaspekter har identifierats kunna hainverkan på psykisk ohälsa. Medan mäns psykiska problem oftare tar sig uttryck via utåtriktade beteendenhandlar kvinnors psykiska problem oftare om ångestrelaterad problematik (Wessel Andersson, et al. 2010).Syftet med studien var att undersöka norrländska gymnasieungdomars upplevelse av otrygghet i skolmiljön,självkänsla och psykisk ohälsa samt om det finns några samband mellan dessa variabler hosundersökningsgruppen. Undersökningen genomfördes på två gymnasieskolor i Norrland och baserades påkvantitativ metod. Totalt ingick 67 personer i undersökningen. Av deltagarna var 34 kvinnor och 33 män (N=67,18-20 år). Resultatet visade att gymnasieungdomarna generellt upplevde sig ha en trygg skolmiljö, en sundsjälvkänsla och god psykisk hälsa. Det fanns ett signifikant negativt samband mellan självkänsla och psykiskohälsa (-.70). Ju högre deltagarna skattat på självkänsla desto lägre hade deltagarna skattat på psykisk ohälsa.Resultatet visar en positiv bild av gymnasieskolan i Norrland.
