COSTA, Maria da Graça Silveira Gomes da; FIGUEIRO, Rafael de Albuquerque  e  FREIRE, Flávia Helena Miranda de Araújo. The phenomenon of chronification on psychosocial aid centers: a case study. Temas psicol. [online]. 2014, vol.22, n.4, pp. 839-851. ISSN 1413-389X.

The psychosocial aid centers (CAPS) play a key role within the network of mental health assistance articulating services and users within the territory, in addition to be a privileged space for the production of care, autonomy and social inclusion. However, several researches on the field of the Psychiatric Reform in Brazil point to the phenomenon of the new chronification on the mental health substitute services. Therefore, this article purports to discuss the care practices in a CAPS II in the city of Natal-RN, having as an analyzer the existence of the "professional users", users who maintains a relationship of great interdependence with the service, which don't integrate themselves in the community and are hardly discharged from the CAPS. From the theoretical and methodological perspective of cartography, we investigate how the professional user is produced and which practices sustain this phenomenon. We noticed that, even going against the traditional model of Psychiatry and hospitalization, this service can generate the institutionalization and chronification of the subjects through methods of organization and work that follows a hierarchical logic of tutelage, isolation from the social environment and the depoliticisation of the users.
