Abstract

Psychosocial Care Centers (CAPS) provide care to people with psychiatric disorders and aim to reinsert them into the community. Assessing these services is important to maintaining quality. This study assessed the satisfaction level of 84 patients, 84 family caregivers and 67 professionals from a large center of mental health care center (CAPS-III). Structured interviews were individually held by applying the Satisfaction with Mental Health Services Scales (SATIS-BR) and socio-demographic questionnaires. Overall scores were high for family caregivers and moderate for the patients and professionals. The family caregivers were satisfied with all the service's dimensions; patients were satisfied with help received, and professionals were satisfied with their relationships with co-workers. Patients were dissatisfied with the service's infrastructure, while professionals were dissatisfied with working conditions and infrastructure. The results indicate a need for investment in the service's infrastructure and to improve working conditions.
