ABSTRACT

In Brazil, the process of psychiatric reform, initiated in late 1970, came due, on the one hand, the crisis in the paradigms of classical psychiatry and secondly, by  efforts of social movements for the rights of psychiatric patients. The study aims to describe  nurse's assistance of Service Mobile Emergency for psychiatric patients and discuss the model of care performed by these nurses to patients in psychiatric crisis in the light of the recommendations defined in the policies of public mental health care. This is an exploratory, qualitative study conducted in Teresina, PI, with 11 nurses by semistructured interviews. The results were presented in two categories namely: performance of nurses in psychiatric emergency and characterization of the model of care performed by nurses to patients in psychiatric crisis. We conclude that nurses have little experience to psychiatric care in emergency situations and its performance is geared primarily for chemical restraint of patients or transfer them to the inpatient unit.
