Abstract [en]

The main focus of psychoeducative interventions for people with persistent mental illnesses have been on the reduction of noncompliance by providing information about symptoms of disease and its treatment. Social support and supporting group contexts have been described as essential for transforming personal strategies into action and the achievement of personal goals. A qualitative descriptive approach was used in order to explore experiences of a person-centered health education group intervention among persons with a persistent mental illness. The sample consisted of 13 persons with a persistent mental illness who had participated in the group intervention between the autumn 2008 and the autumn 2009. Participants expressed experiences of health processes in terms of stimulating content, development towards personal growth and group context with equality, when participating in the intervention. The findings of the actual study support further investigation on the topic of health promotion approaches emphasizing individual preferences throughout the process of psychoeducation. Further research regarding individual preferences and participation in decision-making processes related to issues of compliance among persons with a persistent mental illness are suggested.
