First, since the Line collapsed, she got help: I had a feeling that I was wrong

the 23-year-old Line Randrup Thomsen was told that she had an identity crisis. That life felt impossible and no matter, because she would find out who she is.

the Doctor did not listen, and in the meantime, she got worse and worse and worse - until the day she collapsed on the floor.

"all of a Sudden I fall completely together on the floor and can't move me," says the 23-year-old sygeplejerskestuderende from Vejle to B. T.

Line Randrup Thomsen did not have an identity crisis. She had a moderate depression and wrote themselves into a boring statistics.

Young people are struggling with their mental health. The study ‘the Danes ' Health – The National health profile to 2017’ shows that 23,8 percent. of all women between 16-24 years have a mental ill-health. For men in the same age group, the figure of 12,9 per cent.

According to the Psykiatrifonden get 8 per cent. of the population depression in the course of a year, while the lifetime risk according to the Danish Health and medicines authority is 17-18 per cent.

For Line Randrup Thomsen showed the depression that she could not remember.

Even quite ordinary everyday things forgot she, and she could not concentrate on his study or on to clean up in his apartment.

Friends so she never, for she had closed up inside a bubble.

"I went around with a feeling that I was wrong, and I had a hard time putting into words how I felt," remembers the Line Randrup Thomsen.

Sleep, and scuttled her.

that evening, she collapsed, she had not been able to rest in three days.

Line Randrup Thomsen got emergency help, but then having to figure out how she could fight themselves out of the depression.

And then she came in thinking about a post she had seen on his school.

That said, you could get help, if you walked around with heavy thoughts. Exactly like the ones Line Randrup Thomsen had.

the Advertisement was to ‘LEARN how TO TACKLE anxiety and depression - for young people aged 15-25 years’, which is a squad-based selvhjælpsindsats, which gives young people the tools to master the symptoms and challenges that prevent them to cope with everyday life.

But such experienced Line Randrup Thomsen it is not.

At least not in the first place.

"In the beginning I had it really difficult with the course. I did not feel that I moved me. I am very much the type that when I do something, so I will also be able to see results. And I did not feel I could," she says.

But slowly it dawned on her that she actually got better. She used the tools she was presented with. She could start to focus again and to structure a working day. And it helped that the teacher himself had struggled with a mental disorder.

She also got a huge urge to start studying again and now she even teaches 'LEARN TO TACKLE'efforts.

"I got someone that mirrors me in, and I would like to pass on," she says.

Line Randrup Thomsen is not the only one to have marked a positive change after having followed the courses.

A recent evaluation of the effort shows that 76 per cent. of participants are satisfied or very satisfied with the course, and a survey shows that young people are easier to deal with life.
