MESSIAS, Nayane Keilla; CASTRO, Cássia Bezerra de  and  MARTINS, Mário Henrique da Mata. Versions of users about involuntary psychiatric hospitalization. Rev. Polis Psique [online]. 2020, vol.10, n.1, pp. 123-143. ISSN 2238-152X.

The study analyzes versions of users of mental health services on involuntary psychiatric hospitalization. In order to reach this goal, it reviews the literature in a specialized database, observes the daily life of care institutions for people with mental disorders who have passed or are in the situation of involuntary psychiatric hospitalization and, performs semi-structured interviews with these people. Analysis is based on the genealogic principle and the concept of versions. Results show that mental health studies have privileged the discourse of authors and health network professionals on the subj ect to the detriment of users. Users interviewed reported practices that generate exclusion and violation of rights, whether in psychiatric-hospital services or psychosocial care services. It concludes that is necessary to recover the discourse of the users in scientific studies and psychosocial care services in order to guide mental health practices.
