ROMAGNOLI, Roberta Carvalho; AMORIM, Ana Karenina de Melo Arraes; SEVERO, Ana Kalliny de Sousa  and  NOBRE, Maria Teresa. Intersectoriality in mental health: tensions and challenges in cities of southeastern and northeastern Brazil. Rev. Subj. [online]. 2017, vol.17, n.3, pp. 157-168. ISSN 2359-0769.

This article discusses intersectioriality in the field of brazilian mental health, analyzing its practices in the city of Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais and in the city of Natal, Rio Grande do Norte. Based on the ideas of Deleuze and Guattari and taking the analysis made in the researches made by the authors in the two cities, we approach the strategy of intersectoriality as a rhizome, like a network that is self-engendered by assemblages with the most varied elements of reality, allowing at the same time to trace the reproductions and the inventive displacements that detaches of crystallized structures of intersectorial action. We conclude that, although in different regions, with unique territories, the intersectoriality still faces the following challenges: lack of articulation between systems and services, precarious communication between teams, feeling of work overload, risk of psychologizing of cases and lack of evaluations together after the referrals.

Keywords : public policies; intersectioriality; mental health; rhizome.
