SILVA, Ana Tereza Medeiros C. da et al. Mental health in the PSF and the work of nursing. Rev. bras. enferm. [online]. 2005, vol.58, n.4, pp. 411-415. ISSN 0034-7167. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-71672005000400006.
Research with the purpose of understanding the limits/possibilities of the implementation of mental health actions in the services of the basic health system of the municipal district of CabedeloPB, in the perspective of the Psychiatric Reform proposed in the country. It has theoretical-methodological reference in the Historical Materialism and Dialectics. The empiric material was analyzed by the technique of speech analysis. The results indicated that the work process of the nurses identifies with the work process to Attend (Care/Making). It preserves aspects of the traditional model, but it incorporates other focuses of the Collective Health, in a movement that requests the understanding of the presuppositions of the movement for the Psychiatric Reform for the transformation of the work process of nursing, in the sense of the social inclusion and of the integrality of the assistance.
