BOTTEGA, Carla Garcia  e  MERLO, Alvaro Crespo. Occupational mental health hotline: a discussion on the Brazilian Unified Health Care System (SUS). Rev. Polis Psique [online]. 2016, vol.6, n.3, pp. 77-102. ISSN 2238-152X.

This article discusses the effectuation of an occupational mental health hotline as part of the Occupational Health Clinic of the Brazilian Unified Healthcare System (SUS) based on a psychodynamic view of work within the already established system. It is understood that the hotline is to be a component under discussion within the implementation of the National Occupational Health Policy according to the guidelines of Ordinance No. 1,823/2012. From consideration of testimonials provided by 24 workers using the outpatient occupational health clinic on account of mental illness related to their work, possibilities arose to think the realization of this clinic. The demand was conceived as a necessary care service for workers afflicted by this transitory condition during specific times in their lives because it is work-related and can therefore be overcome with follow-up care and referrals to appropriate occupational mental health care ministrations.
