SILVA, Gelcimary Menegatti da; ZANINI, Daniela Sacramento; RABELO, Ionara Vieira Moura  and  PEGORARO, Renata Fabiana. The conceptions of what is the psychosocial care for mental health professionals of a CAPS. Rev. Psicol. Saúde [online]. 2015, vol.7, n.2, pp. 161-167. ISSN 2177-093X.

In the field of collective mental health practice in Brazil it is perceived a paradigm change from asylum/psychiatric model to psychosocial one, guided by the Psychiatric Reform. This study investigated the conceptions on the psychosocial care ofmental health professionals of a CAPS. We interviewed 24 workers from a CAPS, and their answers were submitted to Bardin's content analysis. This analysis indicated an understanding of the psychosocial care grounded in actions of interdisciplinary and intersectoral nature, executed from the concept of integrality. CAPS model is consideredas a treatment to the person in psychological distress, at a tertiary level, in the public health care and toward the popular classes. Further discussions are needed to understand the psychosocial care as a paradigm and practices in mental health.
