Sammanfattning: The purpose of this study is to examine high school students' attitudes toward the school's efforts to address mental health issues related to school stress and performance anxiety. The purpose of this study is also to explore how the educational institution addresses mental health issues that are connected to stress related to school and performance anxiety. This will be done to determine if there is a discrepancy between how the school works with mental health issues and how students perceive these efforts. The research methods selected for this study are a quantitative questionnaire survey of upper secondary school students and a qualitative interview study with student health professionals. The theory on which this study is based is Katz's Functional Theory of Attitudes, which explains how human attitudes manifest themselves in behavior. After analyzing the results of both research methods, it is possible to conclude that students have positive attitudes towards mental health, but negative attitudes towards the school's work on mental health, particularly in relation to school-related stress and performance anxiety. This is reflected in a lower level of trust in the counselor's ability to help with mental health issues, as well as the students' lack of knowledge about the counselor's and the school's work on mental health issues. In this case, there seems to be a contradiction between the students' attitudes and perceptions and the school's work on school-related stress and performance anxiety.
