"the national Board of health: Those who receive a psychiatric diagnosis, often are ill for a long time."
"This is an opinion piece. It is the writer who stands for the views that are put forward in the text, not Against."
"the DEBATE. Mental illness continues to increase, particularly for children and young people, and the illness is often prolonged. Almost every third young who were diagnosed with depression or anxiety for ten years ago, today still in need of psychiatric care. With mental illness, and the resulting difficulties to establish themselves in working life and adulthood. It shows a new evaluation of the treatment for depression and anxiety disorders as the national Board of health today."
"Depression and anxiety disorders are among the major health scourges, and is behind over 40% of all sick leave in Sweden. More than every third woman falls ill at some time in the life of a depression, and almost every fourth man. "
"the Number of girls aged 15 to 17 years who have been treated for depression and anxiety disorders in the specialized child and youth psychiatry, child psychiatry, has tripled since 2006. By far the largest increase has occurred since 2010. This shows the results of an evaluation of the treatment of depression and anxiety disorders based on the national guidelines as the national Board of health made."
"the National follow-up shows that those who receive a psychiatric diagnosis, often are ill for a long time. 30% of young people who nydiagnostiserades with depression or anxiety disorders in children in the same age group ten years ago are still in need of psychiatric care. More than half of these also have a continued need for drug treatment."
"This means that care should be organised more as for patients with chronic and long term illness such as diabetes, COPD and the like. The need for structured follow-up and access to care and support over time with good continuity."
"Young people who suffer from anxiety and depression are more difficult to establish themselves in employment and adult life. Barely ten years after the diagnosis was one of four completely outside the labour market or were dependent on financial assistance. The livspåverkande the impact of depression and anxiety is, in other words large."
"to break the negative development, it is crucial that more prevention and early intervention, access to an initial assessment and treatment will be further improved as well as healthcare and care have the ability to pay attention to comorbidity. The mortality rate of the diagnoses that are considered to be possible to influence in the health - care system is twice as high for the group with anxiety and depression. The evaluation shows that health care has developed a process to identify co-morbidities in the last ten years. Seven of the ten primärvårdsmottagningar has procedures for how somatic ill-health will be addressed in connection with the diagnosis of anxiety and depression."
"the Evaluation also notes that the health sector has developed positively in other respects. More municipalities and regions have a so-called first line for young people with mental health problems. More suicidriskbedömningar carried out today at the diagnosis and all the more cared for in the child and youth psychiatry. In this way, the availability increased. "
"Waiting times for care and treatment, however, is long and it is also the case within adult psychiatric services. The availability needs to increase, and future supply of skills will therefore be a highly important issue."
"the health Board will continue to follow the trend and also support and promote high-quality health care to children and young people and adults with mental illness. What we are doing and should do in the future in different areas, in the form of to promote health, identify and treat mental illness, provide support and good quality care should be seen as an investment in the future."
