Experiences among children to a parent with psychiatric illness (English)
Abstract [sv]

I EU har man uppskattat att 27 % av de vuxna lider av minst en psykisk sjukdom och det är ett stort folkhälsoproblem i Sverige. Omkring 36% av patienterna inom psykiatrisk vård har minderåriga barn. Det är känt att barn till förälder med psykisk ohälsa har större risk att drabbas av olika svårigheter, men det finns många skyddande faktorer som kan hjälpa dessa barn. Hälso- och sjukvårdslagen förpliktigar professionella inom vuxenpsykiatrisk vård att uppmärksamma dessa barn. Syftet med denna litteraturstudie var att beskriva upplevelser hos barn till patienter inom vuxenpsykiatrin relaterat till förälderns sjukdom och belysa vårdpersonalens betydelse. I studien granskades och analyserades tio artiklar som var publicerade i vårdvetenskapliga tidskrifter och resultaten belyser minderåriga och vuxna barns erfarenheter och omvårdnadspersonalens betydelse. Det finns behov för fortsatt omvårdnadsforskning och utveckling inom klinisk praxis.

Abstract [en]

In the European union it has been estimated that 27% of adults suffer from at least one mental disorder; this is also one of the major public health problems in Sweden. About 36% of patients in psychiatric care have underage children and it is known that children of parents with mental illness have a higher risk of various problems but that there are many protective factors that can help these children. The Swedish Health and Medical Service Act obligates the professionals in psychiatric services to pay attention to these children. The aim of this study was to describe the experiences of the children to parents with mental disorder related to the parent’s illness and highlight the importance of professionals. Ten articles which were published in nursing journals were analyzed. The findings highlights the experiences of underage and adult children and the impact nursing staff may have on the children’s experiences. There is a need for further nursing research and development in clinical practice.
