Psykisk ohälsa bland barn och unga - och vikten av tidiga stödinsatser

This publication is intended for use by all who have daily contact with children and youth, either as a part of their day-to-day work or in their role as caseworker within a municipality or township. It can even be used by children or youth, by parents or legal guardians, or those who want to know more about the current situation in Sweden and how it affects the mental health of children and youth.

The text provides a foundation for understanding what is needed to feel good, what can empower or threaten mental health. It summarizes current available research on the prevalence of mental illness, individual as well as societal factors, as well as which organizations and departments are responsible to provide help and support. This text even addresses the shortcomings that Save the Children Sweden has identified in society. In order to achieve the rights and needs of children with mental health issues, these shortcomings have to be dealt with.
