GARCIA, Grey Yuliet Ceballos; SANTOS, Darci Neves  e  MACHADO, Daiane Borges. Psychosocial Care Centers for Children and Adolescents in Brazil: geographic distribution and user profile. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 2015, vol.31, n.12, pp.2649-2654. ISSN 0102-311X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/0102-311X00053515.

Few Brazilian studies have addressed the use of mental health services for children and adolescents. This study aimed to characterize the national distribution of Psychosocial Care Centers for Children and Adolescents (CAPSi) and describe the patient profile in this age group between 2008 and 2012. An ecological study was carried out, using records from the Authorizations for High-Complexity Procedures (APAC) system and the Brazilian National Registry of Healthcare Organizations (CNES). Socio-demographics and disease profile were analyzed. In 2014, 208 CAPSi were recorded in the CNES, distributed across 23 of Brazil’s 27 states. Treatments included predominantly behavioral disorders (29.7%), developmental disorders (23.6%), and mental retardation (12.5%). CAPSi are insufficient and unequally distributed. The disease profile suggests the need for linkage between specialized mental health services and primary care, in addition to the inclusion of inter-sector work.
