Psychosocial Care Centers III (CAPs) are considered strategic in the reorientation of the care model in mental health. However, they still lack systematic evaluation mechanisms. This study presents a set of indicators developed in a participatory process for the Psychosocial Care Centers III of the state of São Paulo. Sixteen indicators, grouped into 8 themes were developed: Attention to crisis situations; Qualification of group meetings; Networking; Management of Psychosocial Care Centers; Continuing education; Individualization of care; Care for people with intellectual disabilities; and Use of medication. The indicators were tested in services and are presented as a potentially useful tool to support the assessment, monitoring and management of Psychosocial Care Centers III.
