A quantitative study on the perceived burden and resilience in relatives of people with mental illness. (English)
Abstract [sv]

Rollen som anhörig kan upplevas påfrestande för den enskilde individen. Forskning pekar på att anhöriga till personer med psykisk ohälsa upplever mer stress, har ett sämre välmående och en större psykisk utmattning än den genomsnittliga populationen. Motgångar och svårigheter i livet hanteras individuellt. Begreppet resiliens syftade till att beskriva hur och vad som avgör hur vissa behåller god hälsa eller klarar av motgångar bättre än andra.

Studien syftade till att undersöka börda och resiliens hos anhöriga till personer med psykisk ohälsa. Studien genomfördes via en internetenkät, vilken bestod av ett antal bakgrundsfrågor samt två instrument som avsåg att mäta upplevd anhörigbörda och resiliens. Det totala antalet respondenter var 102 stycken.

Resultatet av regressionsanalysen med upplevd börda som beroendevariabel och resiliens som oberoendevariabel visade på ett signifikant negativt samband. Detta betydde att ju högre resiliens desto lägre upplevdes bördan hos de anhöriga. Med hjälp av korrelation påvisades även ett signifikant samband mellan upplevd börda och hur den anhörige skattar sin närståendes hälsa, att när hälsan hos den närstående upplevdes hög upplevdes anhörigbördan låg.

Abstract [en]

The role as relative can also be percieved as stressful for the individual. Research indicates that relatives of people with mental illness are experiencing more stress, have a poorer well-being and a greater psychological distress than the average population. Setbacks and difficulties of life is handled individually. The term ”resilience” aims to investigate what determinates how some people maintain good health or handle adversity better than others.

The study aimed to examine perceived burden and resilience for relatives to people with mental illness. The study was conducted through an online questionnaire. The questionanaire containd a number of background questions and two instruments intended to measure perceived relative burden and resilience. The total number of respondents was 102.

The result of the regression analysis with the perceived burden as dependent variable and resilience as the independent variable showed a significant negative correlation. This negative correlation shows that high resiliens was associated with low burden. With correlation a significant association between perceived burden and how the relative rate their relatives health also were detected. This shows that when the health of the close person with mental illness is high, the burden of the relative was percieved as low.
