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

2022-08-29

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.
