Abstract [en]

BACKGROUND: Psychiatric illness is common among young adults, but there are only a few studies examining their views about the care they receive. There is a paradigm shift towards person-centred care and, therefore, a need for patients' perspectives in the development of clinical guidelines.

AIM: The aim of this study was to examine the views about provided psychiatric care in a group of young adult psychiatric patients.

METHOD: This study was part of a larger study. Patients between the ages of 19-29 years old (n = 127) diagnosed with bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, and/or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder were interviewed. Participants answered open-ended questions concerning their views about provided psychiatric care in six different areas.

RESULT: The results were categorized into six themes: (1) Wish for better diagnostic assessments, (2) Dissatisfaction with treatment, (3) Inadequate information, (4) Lack of professional attitude, (5) Feeling abandoned, and (6) Satisfaction with care.

CONCLUSION: Young psychiatric patients expressed a need for improvement of services that, if implemented, could make psychiatric care more person-centred.
