To handle a changed life situation : A literature overview of relatives' experiences of managing life together with someone with mental illness (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Psykisk ohälsa är något som berör många och är den vanligaste orsaken till sjukskrivning i Sverige. Förutom patientens förändrade tillvaro kan även närstående påverkas negativt såväl som positivt. Närstående till patienter med psykisk ohälsa kan uppleva en utmanande tillvaro med olika former av påfrestningar och det är vanligt att närstående själva får rollen som informella vårdare.                                                                                                                                                           

Syfte: Att utifrån närståendes erfarenheter undersöka olika sätt att hantera livet tillsammans med någon med psykisk ohälsa.

Metod: En litteraturöversikt gjordes. Sökning av artiklar utfördes i tre olika databaser. Studien baseras på tolv artiklar med kvalitativ, kvantitativ samt mixad-metod design. Roys adaptionsmodell valdes som teoretisk utgångspunkt.

Resultat: Resultatet beskriver hur närstående hanterar och bearbetar deras tillvaro vilket beskrivs utifrån det övergripande huvudtemat anpassning med sina fem tillhörande underteman, acceptans, förändring och ökad kunskap, kontroll och balans, distansering samt ett sökande efter stöd. Ett sökande efter stöd och acceptans var mest framträdande vad gäller hur närstående hanterade deras tillvaro. Detta kunde innebära att acceptera hur den aktuella situationen såg ut eller att söka stöd hos familj och vänner.

Diskussion: Resultatet diskuteras utifrån Roys adaptionsmodell och de fyra funktionsområdena fysiologiska behov, självuppfattning, rollfunktion samt relation och samhörighet.

Abstract [en]

Background: Mental illness is something that affects many people and it is the most common reason for sick leave in Sweden. Except for changed life circumstances regarding the patient, it may also have negative or positive effects on relatives. Relatives to patients suffering from mental illness may experience challenging life circumstances and various kinds of burdens. It is also common for relatives to receive a role as an informal caregiver.

Aim: Based on relative's experiences, the aim of this study was to explore how relatives manage life together with someone with mental illness.

Method: A literature overview was conducted. In the search for articles three different databases were used. The work is based on twelve articles with qualitative, quantitative and mixed-method design. Roy's Adaptation Model was used as a theoretical framework.

Results: The results describe how relatives manage and process their life, which is being described from the overall theme adaption along with the sub-themes acceptance, change and enhanced knowledge, control and balance, alienation and a search for support. A search for support and acceptance was most prominent regarding to how relatives managed their life. An example of this could be that relatives accepted the current situation as it was or searched for support within the family or from friends.

Discussion: The results are being discussed on the basis of Roy's Adaptation Model and its four adaptive modes; physiologic-physical, self-concept, role function and interdependence.
