Keywords:Mental Health, Health Human Resource Training, Primary Health Care
This study aimed to describe an experience report on the use of round-table discussion strategy as driver of Healthcare continuing education in the context of Psychiatric Reform. This is a descriptive study that used participatory methodology with workers of four health regions of a municipality located in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. We identified the potential of the first movements of the strategy entitled Mental Health in Discussion in displacing the Primary Healthcare Workers, in the sense of reviewing their practices and their perspective on users in mental distress. It was concluded that the strategy used can enhance the process of Healthcare continuing education in the context of Psychiatric Reform, even as a new proposal, subject to modifications, and that is drawing its own course in each round.
