I work as a research assistant for Elizabeth Hanson within the international project: Psychosocial Support for Promoting Mental health and wellbeing among adolescent young carers in Europe (ME-WE). The aim of ME-WE is thus to make a positive contribution to adolescent young carers´ mental health and well-being. To achieve this, a primary preventions support intervention with a focus on resilience has been co-designed and will now be implemented and evaluated in six European countries, namely Italy, the Netherlands, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK. My role as a research assistant is to help with project coordination, research administration and the Swedish fieldwork in Sweden.
Prior to my employment at Linnaeus University, I graduated with a Bachelor in Biomedicine and thereafter with a Master’s in Health and Lifestyle at Halmstad University.
