Abstract [sv]

De resultat som redovisas ligger i linje med tidigare studier som visar att den självskattade psykiska ohälsan i ett längre tidsperspektiv har ökat bland ungdomar i 15-årsåldern och uppåt, framför allt bland flickor. Flera olika studier indikerar att den tidigare ökningskurvan planat ut och vänt nedåt. I Ung i Värmland undersökningen i årskurs 9 framkommer delvis skilda trender för pojkar och flickor. Även elevernas studieinriktning differentierar tidstrenden. Betydande förändringar över tid påvisas för flickor med icke teoretisk studieinriktning. För yngre ungdomsgrupper är kunskapsluckorna stora ifråga om förändringar av psykisk hälsa. Tidigare studier visar inget enhetligt trendmönster för barn i 11-årsåldern och för barn under tio år saknas trenddata helt.

Abstract [en]

The results in the article are in line with previous studies demonstrating that self-reported mental ill-health has, in a long-term perspective, increased among adolescents in Sweden from age 15 and up, especially among girls. Different studies indicate that the previous upgoing trend has levelled out and turned downwards. Partially separate trends for boys and girls emerge from the Young in Värmland study in grade 9. The academic orientation differentiates the time trend too. Major changes have taken place for girls with a non-theoretical academic orientation. The knowledge gaps are significant for younger adolescents in terms of trends in mental health. Previous studies show no uniform trend pattern for children aged 11, and for children under 10 there are no trend data at all.
