Adolescent Health in the Nordic Region – Health promotion in school settings

Positive health can be boosted among school students. In many parts of the Nordic region schools are implementing health promotion measures that focus on encouraging wellness – in other words, concentrating on things that make students feel good. This report shows how the wellbeing of school students is being enhanced in various school settings in the Nordic region. The importance of a user perspective also emerges.

The report Adolescent Health in the Nordic Region – Health promotion in school settings provides a picture of how the mental health of school students has developed over time and sheds light on the most significant factors for promoting wellbeing, describing the important role that schools play.

The experiences of the activities that the Nordic Welfare Centre describes in this report show that it is possible to improve the work environment for school students and that this need not be complicated. It is about achieving a consensus that it is important to boost students’ wellbeing.

Finland, for example, has a research-based anti-bullying programme called KiVa. The country is also unique in the world in having health studies as a compulsory subject. At a Danish upper secondary school, both students’ mental health and results improved when grades were abandoned for the first year. Read more about this and other inspiring examples in the report.

Subjects:
All children and young people are a huge resource. We have never had such well-educated and competent youngsters in the Nordic countries as we do today. At the sametime there are all the more young persons who claim to be suffering from mental illness, and young persons who, for various reasons, risk ending up in vulnerable situations.
Growing mental illness amongst young people is one of the most serious public health challenges facing our Nordic society.

The project Youth in the Nordic Region focuses on young persons who suffer from or are at risk of suffering from mental illness, as well as their situation at school and their later transition to work and providing for themselves. A further important topic of the project is early retirement and retirement on mental health grounds amongst young adults.

As part of the project we have produced reports which shed light on various aspects of these areas. The report you are holding in front of you aims to give a quick, clear overview of who does what in Sweden in matters concerning young persons who suffer from or risk suffering from mental illness, and end up in long-term unemployment and with no meaningful purpose in life.

We have produced summaries of all the Nordic countries plus Greenland, the Faroe Islands and Åland. We would like to point out to our readers that the summaries do not include everything that is done and that important and useful contributions may be lacking.
