SURJUS, Luciana Togni de Lima e Silva et al. GAM's articulations in and from the city of Santos. Rev. Polis Psique [online]. 2020, vol.10, n.2, pp. 122-142. ISSN 2238-152X.

In this article, we share reverberations of a formative experience in the city of Santos, in São Paulo, and in the articulation of an International Observatory of Medication Management Practices (GAM), with a view to the production of emancipatory and libertarian statistics in mental health . In recent years, the new care actions adopted in the Psychosocial Care paradigm have been applied without, however, being monitored in order to highlight their potential and the unused permissions in daily services. Based on a participatory and collaborative methodology, it is perceived that the training for GAM brings materiality to the principles of the Brazilian Psychiatric Reform, allowing workers a radical exercise of problematizing subtle aspects and little incorporated in their practices, summoning a student to be done together of users. Specifically, with people with drug problems, we highlight the inseparability of the debate about prescription and non-prescription drugs, present in experiences and in the search for pleasure, for the wear of pain, for the construction of a place in consumption relationships and for the reinvention of possible ones. We believe that the GAM Observatory enables the dissemination of GAM on the different imposed, medicalizing manicomic practices of the contemporary.
