Mental health and social class: CAPS (Psychosocial Care Centers), a service that is oriented to a social class

It examines the manifestations of social class in two daily psychosocial care centers, one located in the Northeast and one in southeastern Brazil, based on the theory of everyday life of Agnes Heller. This is a qualitative research with triangulation techniques, privileged with the use of focus groups, with the subject users, relatives and professionals. The caps are bypassed by different social classes, but constitutes a service focused on the poorest segments.
