DOS SANTOS, Elitiele Ortiz et al. Teams reference: contributions to work in mental health. Pesqui. prát. psicossociais [online]. 2018, vol.13, n.1, pp. 1-13. ISSN 1809-8908.

The objective of this article is to understand the organization of the mental health reference team arrangement from the perspective of the professionals of the Psychosocial Care Center (CAPS). A qualitative research was carried out using the theoretical-methodological referential fourth generation evaluation. Data collection took place in 2011 and 2014 through field observations, semi-structured interviews and group data recycling with the professionals of CAPS II of Santa Catarina. In the data analysis was used thematic analysis. The results demonstrate that the conformation in reference teams facilitates an interdisciplinary and accountability of the professionals for health care. To support this arrangement are necessary regular team meetings, as well as, the articulation with the territory through the matrix support. The formation of a reference team facilitates the organization of the service, promoting the construction of more effective therapeutic projects.
