Abstract [en]

Background: Young migrants are a group that are seldom asked to share their experiences of health. More research focusing on an inside perspective on young migrants health is needed. Through photovoice, young people are given the opportunity to document and discuss their lives by using photography.

Purpose of study: Illuminating experiences from collaborating with young migrants to promote health using photovoice, focusing on benefits and challenges with the method.

 Methods/Theory: The study was based on a social perspective on health. Photovoice was the chosen method inviting 28 young migrants in a municipality in northern Sweden aged 16-20 from 5 different countries to take pictures and discussing these with focus on experiences and conditions for health and how health can be promoted. The four step process: 1) Introduction, 2) Photographing session, 3) Workshops, and 4) Final presentation.

 Findings: Using photovoice with young migrants enabled insights into several aspects of the participants’ everyday life inside and outside the school context. The participants could identify health promotion factors but also health challenges in their everyday life. More important, it enabled conversations based on the participants' pictures of their lives rather than questions posed by the researcher. The study also revealed ethical challenges addressing power imbalance and how to reach social change, which is further discussed.

 Conclusion: We recommend using photovoice with young migrants as it proved to be a rich tool to promote critical thinking and discussions allowing self-reflection. However, more research is needed to discuss how to reach social change, the last step of the method.

Abstract [en]

Purpose: The aim of this study was to explore how young people in Sweden who neither work nor study perceive life experiences in relation to health and well-being.

Methods: A task-based interview technique was used and data was analysed with qualitative content analysis. Interviews were conducted with 16 participants aged 16-20 who were unemployed and not eligible for upper secondary school, or who had dropped out of school.

Results: Three themes emerged from the analysis illustrating how the young people perceive their life experiences in relation to health and well-being: Struggling with hardships in the absence of caring connections, Feeling good when closely connected to others, and Being forced to question what has been taken for granted. Each theme consists of 2-3 subthemes.

Conclusion: Based on the young people's narrated experiences health can be understood as: something that is created in relation to others and in relation to the social and cultural context; as something dynamic and changeable; as the ability to adapt and respond to challenges; and finally as something existing on a collective as well as an individual level. Implications for school, social services and health promotion initiatives are discussed, with an emphasis on working with young people.

Abstract [sv]

Sedan 2003 har jag varit delaktig i Arctic Children, ett forsknings- och utvecklingsprojekt med övergripande mål att förbättra barn och ungdomars psykosocialahälsa och välbefinnande. Ett givande samarbete som inkluderar norra delarna av Sverige, Finland, Norge och Ryssland som sedan 2012 gått in i projektets tredje fas för att ta sig an gemensamma utmaningarna kopplat till barn och ungdomars psykiska, psykologiska, emotionella, sociala och andliga hälsa med hjälp av empowerment och informations-och kommunikationsteknik (IKT).
