ALMEIDA, Daniela Tonizza de  and  ARRUDA, Amanda Elias. Permeable Borders and their implications on Mental Health care: the experience of an open and territorial service. Pesqui. prát. psicossociais [online]. 2019, vol.14, n.2, pp. 1-12. ISSN 1809-8908.

From the narratives of daily scenes and fragments of clinical cases, we discuss the implications of permeability between a Psychosocial Care Center III (Caps) and the territory for structuring care, highlighting aspects that favor or hinder its functioning as an open service. We find that, despite some contradictions, there is a rupture with the notion of closure regarding spatiality, the organization of work and the production of care relations. In this context, the interlocution with territories marked by material precarities and structural violence question the institution, its supposed knowledge about madness and its forms of treatment and invite workers to leave their walls, seeking to build with the users always unique outputs for what afflicts them in their entanglements with the world.

Keywords : Mental Health; Mental Health Service; Territory.
