This study aimed to identify the care provided by nurses from the Family Health Strategy to people who are undergoing psychic distress; identify the socioeconomic profile of these nurses; check the actions for health promotion, prevention, and rehabilitation; and analyze nurses’ education to deal with mental health issues in the Family Health Strategy. This is an exploratory study, with qualitative approach, carried out in Carpina, Pernambuco, Brazil, with a sample consisting of 13 nurses, and approved by the Research Ethics Committee of the Cardiac Emergency Center of Pernambuco “Professor Luiz Tavares” of the University Hospital “Oswaldo Cruz” (PROCAPE/HUOC), under the CAAE 04701912.8.0000.5192. Five thematic categories were identified for analysis: 1) Information about people who are undergoing psychic distress within the covered area; 2) Difficulties found in caring for people who are undergoing psychic distress; 3) Reasons that lead users to the Family Health center; 4) Mental health policy in Brazil; and 5) Professional education to care for people who are undergoing psychic distress. The results may guide and outline pathways given the need to advance for consolidating the Brazilian psychiatric reform.
