BARONE, Luciana Rodríguez; ESCOBAR, Juliana de Bittencourt  and  ROVEDA, Afonso Wenneker. Research Gestures: Repercussions of a Mental Health Intervention Within Primary Health Care. Rev. Polis Psique [online]. 2018, vol.8, n.1, pp. 72-91. ISSN 2238-152X.

This article is an experience report of a participatory intervention and cartographic research on mental health within primary care. It problematises modes of knowledge acquisition and explores potentials and affects awakened during fieldwork. We examine the research process of the "Appraisal of Mental Health Care in Primary Health Care: An analysis of Macro-Metropolitan Region 10/Rio Grande do Sul, in light of team practices in the National Program for the Improvement of Access and Quality in Primary Care (PMAQ-AB)" and specifically discuss one city's approach. We engage the field of mental health by decentralising academic gestures in the encounter with the uncentering of basic care. Together with end-users, workers and administrators, we experimented with compositions at this level, as the entrance portal to the healthcare system, opening up to the unpredictable which requires invention and construction of a common in the midst of communities and territories. This perspective articulates research and mental care in the search for clinical practices and modes of research that are more autonomous, singular and produced jointly with the fieldwork.

Keywords : Participatory Research; Mental Health; Primary Care.
