‘Cultural strategies as alternatives for the social inclusion of vulnerable populations in the field of mental health public policies: a case study in the community of Manguinhos’ is a project developed in partnership with the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation (Fiocruz), the Getúlio Vargas Foundation (FGV), and Queen Mary University of London (QMUL).
It aims to understand sociocultural experiences, interpreting them as valuable mechanisms for care, social inclusion and the consolidation of rights.
