GOMES, José Carlos Rodrigues  e  LOUREIRO, Maria Isabel Guedes. The role of community-based participatory research in mental health promotion. Rev. Port. Sau. Pub. [online]. 2013, vol.31, n.1, pp.32-48. ISSN 0870-9025.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.rpsp.2013.06.001.

Mental health is essential to community social and economic development. Involving communities in the design and development of mental health promotion local plans is a major challenge to ensure more and better mental health in each community. From 2009 to 2012 a case study was developed based on the assumptions of a community-based participatory research in an urban community in the metropolitan area of Lisbon, in order to support the design of a mental health promotion local plan. The result of this partnership, which involved inhabitants and governmental and non-governmental organizations of the urban community, based on individual and community empowerment of the community and its members, confirmed the need for an active and effective participation of the community in the development of health promotion local policies and concluded by defining six strategic areas of intervention between 2012 and 2015: a school with mental health, an active and safe community, a supportive and inclusive community, a community aware, an organization promoting economic and work mental health, a seniority mentally healthy.
