The Swedish Social Insurance Agency founds research project about inclusion and sustainability in working life for young adults with OCD


Åsa Andersén has been granted funding from the Social Insurance Agency to investigate facilitators and barriers for work entry and sustainability in work participation in young adults, 19-29 years, diagnosed with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). OCD impacts the possibilities for education and establishment in the labor market. The aim of the present project is to, based on a:

  • societal perspective, through register data, examine what characterizes different patterns of sick leave, unemployment and work participation, in case of OCD, and what significance comorbidities has for this
  • individual perspective, through interviews, deepen the knowledge of individual and societal prerequisites for work entry and a sustainable work participation.

Co-applicants in the project are PhD. Lisa Holmlund and PhD. Magnus Helgesson, at Karolinska Institutet. The three-year research project will start in autumn 2022.
