Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att undersöka och beskriva attityder till psykisk ohälsa hos psykiatripersonal, samt att undersöka skillnader i attityd inom bakgrundsfaktorerna kön, ålder och utbildningsnivå. Studien har tagit del utav forskningsprojektet Psykisk ohälsa. En deskriptiv och komparativ design med kvantitativ ansats användes. Data insamlades från 216 returnerade enkäter från vårdpersonal inom psykiatrin. Frågeformuläret Nya CAMI-S med 29 påståenden användes. Analyserna utfördes med statistikprogrammet SPSS för att beskriva frekvenser och att för att se skillnader användes chi 2-test. Resultatet visade att vårdpersonalen inom psykiatrin överlag har en positiv attityd till psykisk ohälsa. Mest negativ attityd fick påståendet om de som varit patient inom psykiatrin var en pålitlig barnvakt. Signifikanta skillnader sågs mellan åldersgrupperna, där äldre hade mer positiv attityd. Mellan könen sågs signifikanta skillnader i påståendet om att psykisk sjukdom är som vilken annan sjukdom som helst där män hade mer negativ attityd. Inga signifikanta skillnader sågs mellan utbildningsnivåerna. Slutligen visade studien övervägande positiva attityder hos vårdpersonalen, dock framkom negativa attityder inom vissa områden. Vidare forskning och utbildning inom området kan leda till mer positiva attityder i framtiden.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to investigate and describe attitudes towards mental illness among mental health workers and to investigate differences in attitudes within the background factors of gender, age and educational level. This study is a part of the project ‘Psykisk ohälsa’. A descriptive and comparative design with quantitative approach was used. Data were collected from 216 returned surveys. The questionnaire ‘New CAMI-S’ with 29 items were used. Data were analyzed with SPSS to describe the frequency and chi 2-test was used to measuring the differences. The results showed that the mental health workers in general had a positive attitude towards mental illness. Most negative attitudes were seen in the item about most persons who were once patients in a mental hospital can be trusted as babysitters. Three significant differences were seen between ages. The older group had more positive attitudes towards mental illness. One significant item was found between gender, men had more negative attitudes. No significance was found between education levels. The conclusions showed that most of the staff had positive attitudes, however, negative attitudes were found in some areas. Further research and education in this topic could lead into more positive attitudes in the future.
