LEAL, Diego Fernandes et al. The perception of mental health workers about the performance of the damage reducer. SMAD, Rev. Eletrônica Saúde Mental Álcool Drog. (Ed. port.) [online]. 2021, vol.17, n.1, pp. 66-74. ISSN 1806-6976.

OBJECTIVE: to know the workers' perception about the performance of the damage reducer in a Psychosocial Care Center for Alcohol and other drugs (PSCCad), thus collaborating with the problematization and transformation of the reality of the care for users of alcohol and other drugs. METHOD: this is a qualitative and exploratory research, of a descriptive nature, carried out with professionals from a PSCCad in the city of Sant'Ana do Livramento using the Narrative Focus Group (NFG) technique. In order to perform the data analysis, the content was transformed into group narrative. RESULTS: the discussion was pointed out in the face of the perception of the figure of the damage reducer and its interrelation in the daily routine of the mental health clinic, presenting strengths and challenges. CONCLUSION: it is evident the importance of the role that damage reduction plays in the scope of the Brazilian Psychiatric Reform. The figure of the damage reducer in the service is that this professional has the capacity to create bonds, perform an effective welcoming and that can assist in deconstructing the stigma that the substance user suffers in society, being a powerful tool for construction and transmutation in people's lives.
