MORI, Maria Elizabeth; COELHO, Vera Lúcia Decnop  e  ESTRELLA, Renata da Costa Netto. The Unified National Health System and public policies: psychological care for menopausal women in the Federal District, Brazil. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 2006, vol.22, n.9, pp.1825-1833. ISSN 0102-311X.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0102-311X2006000900013.

This study focused on psychological care for middle-aged women in public health services in the Federal District (Brasilia), Brazil. The article discusses women's health and more specifically menopause and its place in Brazilian public health policies. The survey confirmed the lack of psychological support for menopausal women. In most cases only outpatient medical care was offered. No psychologist had been designated in any of the units surveyed to assist these women. The study concludes that this period of women's life has failed to receive psychological care in Brazil, thus neglecting the principles of the Unified National Health System. Menopausal women deserve comprehensive health care, including attention to conflicts related to biological, psychological, and socio-cultural dimensions of aging, thus contributing to the process of working through maturity.
