This qualitative approach study aimed to know, analyze, and understand how the withdrawal of social and labor rights interfered in the life and work of people with severe mental disorders. In-depth interviews with eleven participants, eight men and three women who were assisted at a psychiatric outpatient clinic of a university hospital, were performed. Semi-structured script interviews were conducted and content analysis was performed. The results indicate that the work trajectory of the participants began in childhood and adolescence, so that all performed work activities when they received diagnosis. The study highlighted the need for medical leave, the difficulties related to the return, and the withdrawal from work environment of part of the people interviewed. In view of this, the social and labor losses after the diagnosis of mental disorder reported by the participants were discussed. The stigmatization process manifested in their work, family and community environments and contributed to the decline in career and remuneration or to the withdrawal from their activities.
