: "The most important factor is to dare to talk about it" (English)
Abstract [sv]

I Sverige ökade sjukskrivningarna relaterade till psykisk ohälsa med 129 % mellan 2011

och 2017, Dalarnas län hade högst andel. Kvinnor står för majoriteten av sjukskrivningarna,

detta gäller främst kvinnor anställda inom offentlig sektor.

Syftet med undersökningen var att beskriva enhetschefers erfarenheter av vilka

faktorer som kan bidra till att förebygga eller förkorta en sjukskrivning hos baspersonal

inom socialtjänsten relaterad till psykisk ohälsa. En kvalitativ studie med semistrukturerade

intervjuer genomfördes. Den empiriska datan analyserades med tematisk analys, kopplades

till tidigare forskning och till de teoretiska perspektiven genus och KASAM.

Socionomer besitter ofta ledande roller inom offentlig sektor. Forskning kring

faktorer som förebygger psykisk ohälsa samt faktorer som underlättar återgång i arbete ses

därför som nödvändiga. Våra slutsatser visar betydelsen av ett öppet klimat, delaktighet,

tidiga insatser, tydligt ledarskap och ett behov av mer utbildning kring psykisk ohälsa.

Abstract [en]

In Sweden, absence from work related to mental health issues rose with 129 % between

2011 and 2017. Dalarna county reported the highest increase. The majority of absence was

that of women, specifically women working within the public sector. The aim of the study

was to describe heads of departments experiences of which factors may prevent or shorten

absence of work related to mental health issues among personnel within social service. A

qualitative study with semistructured interviews was completed. The empirical data was

analysed using a thematic analysis method and then related to pre-existing studies and the

theoretical perspectives gender and SOC.

Bachelors of social work often hold leading positions within the public sector.

Studies concerning factors of importance for preventing mental health issues and factors of

importance for easing a return to work are viewed as a necessity. The conclusion of our

study shows the importance of a open work climate, participation, early efforts, distinct

leadership, and a need of further education concerning mental health.
