TOMICIC, Alemka et al. Return to work in workers with mental health problems: attendants perspective. Cienc Trab. [online]. 2014, vol.16, n.51, pp.137-145. ISSN 0718-2449.

Background: In recent years there has been an increase in the prevalence of work-related mental problems, significantly increasing the average annual working days lost because of leave sick. With respect to the later return-to-work, the evidence is categorical in affirming the importance of the successful of this process for the relapse prevention. Furthermore, we note that throughout Latin America the literature and research on interventions to return-to-work is almost absent. Objective: To study the conditions of diagnosis, intervention and return to work that have shown effectiveness from the perspectives and experiences of professionals from a mutuality regarding the intervention to return to work in individuals with problems of mental health of occupational origin. Method: An exploratory-descriptive research was designed using qualitative methodology. Focus groups and interviews to six psychologists, three psychiatrists and four occupational therapists were used. Results: From a descriptive analysis using the procedure of open coding proposed by the Grounded Theory model, five core categories and two transverse phenomena emerged: The tripartite communication and the process oriented by the return to work. The two refer to the process of intervention to return to work as the actors involved in this, whether mutuality or the workers' immediate labor context.
