Description of initiative
The challenge of working with mental health in the country was rethought by a group, called Apasso a Porta, from the Psychosocial Care Center in Paranoá, Brazil. The artistic team, composed of 22 employees and former employees of the place, in addition to some patients, reinforces the importance of this type of intervention to offer humanized care. Psychosocial Care Center received film and theater performances to assist in the humanized treatment of mental disorders. This type of project is fundamental for the rehabilitation of people undergoing treatment for mental disorders: the possibility of cultural and artistic creation involves the subjectivity that patients themselves present during treatment with other professionals.
