LABATE, Renata Curi; GALERA, Sueli Aparecida Frari  and  AVANCI, Rita de Cássia. Home visit: the perspective of the psychiatric nursing. Rev. bras. enferm. [online]. 2004, vol.57, n.5, pp.627-628. ISSN 0034-7167.

The home visit is a matter of concern in diverse areas of nursing. With the implementation of psychiatric services in the community, the need for visits has become evident. For one year, we were involved with this activity, requesting it or providing it for patients assisted in the Núcleo de Saúde Mental (Mental Health Center). The aim of this paper is to describe our experience, detailing the following aspects: the public and private life of the family and the collaboration between professionals and resources in the community. Home visits bring the team closer to the diseased person's context and favor articulation among him/her, his/her family, the health center and community resources.

Keywords : home visit; psychiatric nursing and mental health; family.
