SEQUEIRA, Carlos; SA, Luís; CARVALHO, José Carlos  e  SAMPAIO, Francisco. Impact of the financial and social crisis on mental health. Revista Portuguesa de Enfermagem de Saúde Mental [online]. 2015, n.14, pp.72-76. ISSN 1647-2160.

We are concerned about the impact of the financial and social crisis in people’s mental health. Thus, in this article we decided to reflect on the latest available evidence on the subject in Portugal and abroad, aiming at refocusing the attention of mental health professionals in what we think is necessary to be promoted: the centrality of care in people and the continuity of care in mental health. The financial crisis, which caught everyone off guard, has revealed the weaknesses and lack of preparedness of health systems to deal with social problems that often constitute risk for the emergence of psychopathology. The way families and people were able to meet its needs related to the well-being also reveals the adaptability and resilience of the Portuguese people. The financial and social crisis has had and will continue to have an impact on various dimensions of people's lives, so we also reflected on some strategies for minimizing the effects of the crisis in mental health.
