GOULART, Maria Stella Brandão. The mental health policy in Minas Gerais: towards consolidation. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.8, n.spe, pp. 194-213. ISSN 1983-8220.

This article deals with mental health policy in Minas Gerais, exploring historical ethical and present aspects, highlighting some of the many challenges that arise for our reality, once considering the deinstitutionalization process and construction of alternative devices for psychiatric hospitals. The principal objective is to systematize the discussion in order to sustain the reflection on the theme of mental health. Terminology, actors and institutions are explored in a descriptive and panoramic perspective on the subject, taking that which takes place in the city of Belo Horizonte as a reference.

Keywords : Mental Health; Psychiatric Reform; Social Movements.
