9 Sep 2016
The theme of the study is young people in vulnerable situations in terms of education, work, participation and mental ill-health.
The report also examines how public agencies and services in the three countries describe challenges, initiatives and measures relating to this group. The work is based on qualitative interviews held in Iceland, the Faroe Islands and Norway.
The researchers have interviewed 22 young men and women who, for various reasons, are at risk of exclusion from important societal arenas. They also interviewed 58 professionals working with the target group at national, municipal and project levels.
This report is the result of a collaboration between the Nordland Research Institute and the Nordic centre for Welfare and Social Issues project, Youth in the Nordic Region – Mental Health, Employment and Education. The report is an abbreviated version of the research report, When Someone has to Take Charge. Youth and Mental Health: Challenges, Policy and Collaboration in Iceland, the Faroe Islands and Norway (Anvik and Waldahl, NF- Report No. 1/2016).
