LEMOS, Vanessa Santos  and  LHULLIER, Cristina. Psychology at primary care and public health. Rev. Psicol. Saúde [online]. 2020, vol.12, n.3, pp. 177-188. ISSN 2177-093X.

The article aims to describe the psychologist's challenges in primary care health. We conducted a qualitative, exploratory, and descriptive research. We analyzed ten scientific articles, published between 2001 and 2017 at the Portal de Periódicos da Capes. These articles subject were psychologist's narratives of work at primary care health. They were analyzed from the perspective of Laville and Dionne's analysis of content. Results point to the necessity of a board perspective of health by the psychologists and the development of a collective health approach to mental health. Thus, we were capable to enable preventive, humanized attention to health in all dimensions at primary care. Furthermore, there is a need for necessary changes in psychologist's formation and objectives policies guidelines to mental health at the primary care.
