SENNA, Leonardo Lima de  and  AZAMBUJA, Marcos Adegas de. Autonomous Medication Management: knowledge and visibilities of mental health users at universities in the countryside of RS/Brazil. Rev. Polis Psique [online]. 2019, vol.9, n.2, pp. 67-86. ISSN 2238-152X.

This apper deals with the effects of a research on the strategy of Autonomous Medication Management in mental health users who are now taking the place of lecturers in academic settings in the countrtyside of the district of RS, Brazil. The purpose of the general objective was to analyze how these investments and visibilities were constituted in the knowledge of the users to attend these universities. We also attempted to describe the relations of knowledge and power and the limits of the practice of autonomy in classrooms. Through a Foucauldian-inspired approach, the strategic field produced by the research and the statements 'knowing in the body' and 'autonomy' were mapped by the experience of six participation of these people as lecturers. It discusses the production of a body that finds other possibilities beyond the relation with medicine and madness, as well as a process of temporary autonomy in the role of forces of the action of one on the other.

Keywords : mental health; gam; users; autonomy.
