Thus, new agreements and pacts emerged in the micro and macro-political spheres. This experience reduced the number of psychiatric visits at the hospital emergency room from the reorganization of the other components. In addition, the of the emergency department and hospital admissions took new formatting, more consonant with the logic of the territory and care in freedom
