Sammanfattning: Background: Mental illness is a growing problem in society, which means that pediatric nurses in neonatal departments meet parents with mental illness more and more often. The pediatric nurse should respond to all children and families in a respectful, empathetic and careful manner, as well as be able to identify the child's and family's resources and needs. Purpose: To describe the pediatric nurses' experience of responding to parents with mental illnesses in neonatal departments. Method: Qualitative design with inductive approach. Data was collected through four semi-structured focus group discussions, with 18 pediatric nurses. Data was analyzed with qualitative manifest content analysis. Result: The analysis resulted in three categories; experience of inadequacy, experience of insecurity and experiences whit good structure and increased knowledge. Frustration and uncertainty were prominent in the discussions and were mainly due to lack of knowledge or lack of cooperation between instances. Anxiety and fear were felt to have a negative impact on the responding between nurses and parents. Feelings of security appeared in good structures and higher levels of knowledge. Conclusion: By raising awareness of pediatric nurses' thoughts and feelings of responding to parents with mental illness, a development and improvement can be made with regard to knowledge and working methods in the field. Education, tutorial and better interdisciplinary co-operation create security, which has a positive impact on the respond and furthermore, the role of the parents strengthens, which ultimately will be beneficial for the child and its development.
