MELLO, Adriana Pinto de. Between the cross and the sword. Rev. bras. crescimento desenvolv. hum. [online]. 2010, vol.20, n.1, pp. 106-111. ISSN 0104-1282.

This study is the report of the history and activities of the project Qorpo Santo, a collective and institutional project which proposes alternatives for discharge and reintegration in the community for long hospitalized patients in compliance with Measure of Security in the Forensic Psychiatric Institute Maurício Cardoso (IPF), in Porto Alegre-RS. This is an experiment in which the existence of different views presents various possibilities for readings and interventions. Taking as reference the Law of the Psychiatric Reform, the study aims to question the mental health care to the judiciary patient. The management proposal is on the one hand, the promotion of patient autonomy, the redemption of his word, their accountability for their actions and their choices and, secondly, the patient's legal recognition as a citizen, user of the health system and individual with rights.

Keywords : psychiatry; public policy; community psychiatry.
