Abstract [en]

Gistrand, C. has studied “Explore young people's problematic backgrounds and their views on the opportunities and obstacles in order to improve their health”, University of Gävle in the course theory and method of application and thesis work.

The object of the study was to give young people space to make their voices heard. Further on to make unemployed youths perceptions of perceived opportunities and obstacles in their way to get a job, internship or study, visible. The object of the study was also to show youths’ views of health and what they thought about the contributions to society.

The method was qualitative, with three semi-structured interviews with men between 20-24 years old (and problematic childhoods, for instance alcohol and drug use) was conducted..

The result shows that unemployment increases the risk of illness and unhealthy habits. Addicts, criminal behaviors, economy and social exclusion also impacts health and they interact with each other, so it’s very complex for the society to know which effort they should prioritize. The selection group thought that the society should develop a number of alternative activites for young people to engage in on their spare time.

The conclusion is that unemployed youth tend to suffer from social exclusion, poor economy and that leads to bad health and can develop an addict or a criminal behavior. It’s important for the public health that the society support every individual.
