NASCIMENTO, Geysa Cristina Marcelino; SCORSOLINI-COMIN, Fabio  e  PERES, Rodrigo Sanches. Mental Health in the Unified Health System: Mapping the Contributions from the Psychosocial Care Centers. SMAD, Rev. Eletrônica Saúde Mental Álcool Drog. (Ed. port.) [online]. 2013, vol.9, n.2, pp. 95-102. ISSN 1806-6976.

This article aims to present a review of the scientific literature on the Psychosocial Care Centers (CAPS). A search in the LILACS, SciELO-Brazil, and PePSIC databases returned 10 articles. These articles, in general, show that the CAPS have been essential for the consolidation of the psychiatric reform in Brazil. There is a predominance of qualitative studies conducted with patients, their families, and health professionals. Some of the challenges relate to the need for greater coordination between mental health and primary care; thus, establishing a collaborative relationship between patients and health professionals, in addition to qualification requirements, and performance evaluations of these professionals.
