COSTA NETO, Mauricio Cirilo da  e  DIMENSTEIN, Magda. Psychosocial and mental health care in rural environments. Temas psicol. [online]. 2017, vol.25, n.4, pp. 1653-1664. ISSN 1413-389X.

Rural populations have historically suffered the effects of a socio-economic model based on country estates and exploitation of workers. Such model is associated with the appearance of psychosocial and environmental vulnerabilities that have a negative impact on mental health. Therefore, in rural environments there are certain conditions that play a major role in the health-disease process and must be considered in health care planning. This theoretical study discusses the case of mental health care from the perspective of social determinants of health considering the concrete territories of rural populations. We conducted a literature review using relevant databases, which demonstrated a lack of studies about the chosen topic. The territorial and community logic supporting psychosocial care must be introduced in daily care services. Such process will provide more effective solutions to the mental health needs of rural populations, which are directly related to the iniquities that have shaped life in the countryside.
