Abstract [en]

This report aimed to create a guiding document for teachers and schools regarding existential health and existential questions. The purpose was to research the need of existential health and existential questions in secondary school students and how it can effect the mental health, what the curriculum says about existential questions, how teachers can include existential health and existential questions in their education and finally, to see if existential health and questions are dealt with as much as it should in relation to need and positive effects. The results showed that existential health and dealing with existential questions could improve health, mental health and prevent mental health issues, which is an ever-increasing problem in Sweden. Existential health is included in the united nations convention for children’s rights and in the world health organization’s convention for supporting arenas, in which schools are included. Existential health is not mandatory in the subject of religion in secondary school, and research shows that it is not dealt with as much as it should be in this subject. Existential health should be included in the student health programs in Swedish schools, because of the positive effects that it can have on student’s mental health but also because Sweden is lawfully bound by U. N’s convention to include this. Teachers in religion could be an important asset in including existential health in student health programs in schools.
