Abstract [en]

The main focus of psychoeducative interventions for people with persistent mental illnesses has been on providing information about symptoms of disease and its treatment. Supporting group contexts have been described as essential for the achievement of personal goals. A qualitative approach was used to describe participants’ experiences of a person-centered health education intervention in community mental health care. Participants expressed experiences of health processes in terms of stimulating content, development towards personal growth and group context with equality, when participating in the intervention. The findings support further investigation of health promotion approaches emphasizing individual preferences throughout the process of psychoeducation.
