Researchers at Mälardalen University (MDH) are investigating how crises affect us as humans – knowledge that can be used to find the right tools for how we can deal with these in the best way and to come strengthened out of the crisis.

Researchers at MDH, together with Karolinska Institutet, have made a study on mental ill-health in elderly men and have concluded that nurses in primary care play a key role in identifying mental ill-health among elderly men. To prevent suicide requires close cooperation among professionals and with the patients’ relatives.
