Abstract [en]

Research shows that mental ill-health increases in society and the purpose of the study was to investigate what perceived loneliness means and how it affects the health of the individual. This was done by using the theories SOC (Sense of coherence), attachment theory and Cognitive theory in a literary study of 7 articles. The result shows that perceived loneliness increases the risk of ill health, both physical and mental, and that children and women are more vulnerable. Perceived loneliness in early age increases the risk of depression and suicidal thoughts and perceived loneliness in the elderly contributes to a reduced cognitive function and an increased risk of dementia. 

 

Conclusion: perceived loneliness is part of the growing mental ill-health in society and the study highlights the importance of addressing the perceived sense of loneliness as early as possible, to avoid further negative health aspects for the individual.
