Doctoral student at the Department for Epidemiology and Global Health. My research concerns young people's mental health and participation in civil society.
Doctoral student at the Department for Epidemiology and Global Health. Also affiliated to the Umeå Centre for Gender Studies (UCGS). The overall aim of my doctoral thesis is to explore and understand how teenagers involved in various civic organizations and leisure activities (both online and offline) develop a collective capacity to influence their mental health. This ethnographic study, based on participatory observations and photo elicitation explores teens' own perspectives, meanings and experiences on how social processes in the context of civic spaces influence social factors of youth mental health, such as stress and achievement pressure.
