Farmers´ experiences of social support : A qualitative study based on semi-structured interviews (English)
Abstract [sv]

Inledning: Lantbrukare står för flest dödsfall till följd av stress och mental sjukdom, jämfört med andra yrkesgrupper. Socialt stöd blir därför extra viktigt eftersom det tycks fungera som en stötdämpare mot den stress, oro och ångest som många lantbrukare drabbas av i sitt yrkesliv.

Syfte: Syftet med den här studien är att undersöka och beskriva lantbrukares erfarenheter av socialt stöd.

Metod: Semistrukturerade intervjuer baserade på frågor som speglade studiefrågan hölls med svenska lantbrukare. Materialet analyserades och sammanställdes genom en kvalitativ innehållsanalys, där både det latenta och manifesta innehållet tolkades.

Resultat: Lantbrukares erfarenhet av socialt stöd präglas mycket av familj och vänner. När stödet från dessa inte räcker till säger sig de flesta vara beredda att vända sig till olika typer av professionella aktörer, men helst vänder man sig till ett välbekant stöd. Familjen bidrar både till socialt stöd och en upplevelse av höga krav.

Summering: Lantbrukare har flera olika källor till socialt stöd och överlag positiva erfarenheter av dessa. Det som ibland håller tillbaka lantbrukare från att söka socialt stöd är de gamla traditionella attityderna och yrkets starka band till familjen, vilket gör att de inte vill oroa familjen och därmed väntar med att öppna upp sig om bekymmer.

Abstract [en]

Introduction: Compared to other occupational groups, farmers account for the most deaths due to stress and mental illness. Therefore, social support is becoming extremely important, as it seems to act as a health buffer against the stress and anxiety that many farmers suffer in their professional lives.

Aim: The purpose of this study is to examine and describe farmers' experiences in social support.

Method: Semi-structured interviews based on questions that reflected the study issue were held with Swedish farmers. The material was analysed and compiled through a qualitative content analysis, in which both the latent and manifest content were interpreted.

Result: Farmers' experiences of social support is characterized by family and friends. When their support is not sufficient, most farmers say they are prepared to turn to professional actors, but ideally they turn to a familiar support. The family contributes both to social support and an experience of high demands.

Summary: Farmers have several different sources of social support and generally positive experiences of these. What sometimes holds farmers back from seeking social support is the old traditional attitudes and the profession's strong ties to the family. Farmers do not want to worry their family and therefore they wait to tell them about worries.
