SOUSA FILHO, Carlos de  y  FERREIRA NETO, João Leite. Severe mental disorders in primary health care: experiences of professionals from family health teams. Rev. Psicol. Saúde [online]. 2021, vol.13, n.3, pp. 99-115. ISSN 2177-093X.

This study aimed to know the experience of family health teams with users with severe and persistent mental disorders, based on the meanings attributed to users with mental disorders, as well as the practices developed by professionals. Therefore, qualitative and descriptive field research was carried out, in which eight professionals from Family Health Units were interviewed, one urban and one rural. We analyzed the data from the perspective of content analysis. In the results, the fear of some participants concerning people with mental disorders was evidenced, an attempt by professionals to recognize these people from a meaning. In management, procedures were observed, such as the collection of life history, home visits, and the family's difficulty in participating in the treatment. Finally, it was identified the need to work with the teams on knowledge about mental disorders, the bond, and Primary Care.
