GRANA, Leila  and  BASTOS, André G.. Social vulnerability:: psychological assesment as a mapping method of mental diseases. Psicol. cienc. prof. [online]. 2010, vol.30, n.3, pp. 650-661. ISSN 1414-9893.

This study demonstrates the experience of working in a Reference Center of Social Welfare of the state of Rio Grande do Sul. A mapping of the mental illnesses of the population in social vulnerability was carried out, through the process of psychological diagnosis, as a pilot study. Three subjects were chosen as sample: a woman, a female teenager and a boy. The social and psychological factors were analyzed. The pilot study showed that the inclusion of psychological diagnosis can contribute as an important diagnostic tool of the population. However, it is necessary that public policy offers the proper health services to the population as a strategy to the work with risk factors.
