It raises questions about how to develop the methods we use to understand young people’s situation, their problems and resources, as well as to scrutinize how young people’s mental health is represented in research reports and media.
The first section presents the cross-national survey Health Behavior in School-Aged Children. It concerns how the survey is carried out and further developed, and how young people interpret and relate to the questions in the survey.
The second section presents research on norms, values and assumptions embedded in research methods, and in cultural and media representations of young people’s mental health. The aim of the workshop is to create a space where we can share, complement and engage in discussions of methods and representations of young people´s mental health.
