ROCHA, Lêda Antunes; PRATES, Tharcísio Barbosa de Souza; SOUZA, Viviane dos Santos  e  GUSMAO, Ricardo Otávio Maia. Perception of users of a psychosocial care center on mental health care. Mental [online]. 2021, vol.13, n.23, pp. 123-143. ISSN 1679-4427.

The Brazilian Psychiatric Reform began in the 70s, gained strength from the 1988 constitution, where SUS and its guidelines were created. The reform movement took place in a complex and progressive way, marked by several achievements, mainly with regard to laws and decrees, which not only puts an end to the hospital-centered model, but also inaugurates a new care network. Taking this historical process into account, this study aims to understand the perception of users of a Psychosocial Care Center (CAPS) about mental health care in the city of Montes Claros-MG from the new model of care established by the Psychiatric Reform . This is a qualitative descriptive study, using the semi-structured interview with CAPS II patients from the city of Montes Claros-MG as a research tool, for data analysis using the Content Analysis technique. The results led to three categories: Mental health care under the eyes of users; The clinic in the context of changing the mental health care model; The psychosocial rehabilitation scenario between the lived and the ideal. It was possible to conclude that the patients noticed changes related to a more humanized way of caring.
