VIEGAS, Lygia de Sousa; FREIRE, Klessyo do Espírito Santo  and  BOMFIM, Flávia Brandão. Attendance to the school complaint in the public services of Bahia's mental health services. Psicol. Esc. Educ. [online]. 2018, vol.22, n.1, pp.133-140. ISSN 2175-3539.

This article analyzes the performance of psychologists in public mental health services in response to school demand in Bahia. To that end, the psychologists who work in the Psychosocial Care Centers (CAPS) answered a questionnaire with questions about their professional profile, the profile of the school demands and the practices and conceptions adopted in meeting these demands. The analysis pointed out, in relation to the professional profile, the presence of female psychologists, young, recently graduated in private educational institutions. Regarding the referral profile, the presence of poor and black students aged 6 to 12 years old, students of public primary education, referred by learning and behavior problems, stands out. In the care, an individualized view of the school complaint prevails, although there are professionals who incorporate critical elements. It expects, with the research, to contribute to the advances in the attendance to the school demands, present in publications in the field of the school and educational psychology in a critical perspective.
