EMMANUEL-TAURO, David Victor  e  FOSCACHES, Daniel Acosta Lezcano. Current mental health policies in Brazil: reflections in light of the work of Cornelius Castoriadis. Mental [online]. 2018, vol.12, n.22, pp. 90-112. ISSN 1679-4427.

This article is a part of a research project within the Master’s in Psychology Program of the Universidade Federal do Mato Grosso do Sul (UFMS), aiming at studying aspects of the current policies of Mental Health in Brail, above all, the efficacy that they bring in the case of one of their principal objectives, the social inclusion of psychotics. The basic presuppositions of the Psychiatric Reform in Brazil are presented and, following this, a small exposition of some of the elucidations of Cornelius Castoriadis are presented. Qualitative methodology was used, as well as the recourse to bibliographical research permeated with the methodological bases of the author we used. Results permitted us to point out the impossibility of projecting psychical and social-historical aspects, ie., the policies of mental health, within Ensemblistic-Identitary logic, raising interrogations on the possibilities of a project of autonomy within the directives of these policies. Finally, since the research is still in progress, besides theoretical data collection, an analysis of the contents of the documents expressing the principal actions of these policies will be done, in search of elucidations of the interrogations raised.

Palavras-chave : mental health; politics; social historical.
