Quantitative measures: What are the relationships between young women's mental health and their experiences of social support, relational violence, social media and/or school violations, sex discrimination, and pornography?

Qualitative question: What subjective experiences do young women have of mental health and what does it contain from their perspective?

Objectives: To support young women to influence and change the conditions of mental health according to their own understanding of the phenomenon.

Activities: Data collection via survey and focus groups in elementary school with follow-up meetings with the young women after one semester. Feedback to schools and parents of the results on group-level.
