The term psychosocial deficiency is characterized by the classification of a problem in the mental functions of an individual, which may be one or more limitations of the capacities of consciousness, learning, social interaction, temperament, energy and impulse, bonding, personality, memory, concentration, language, perception, according to the classification of mental functions by the CIF. The impacts of a mental disorder on a person's life are often devastating and only with the support of multiprofessional staff and good family and psychosocial support are it possible to control and overcome. However, the marks that the rupture of a state of health regarded as normal, for the transition in a diagnosed mental disorder frame bring in themselves a historical context of losses, frustrations and fragilities that are sometimes stigmatizing and excluding. Individuals with chronic and persistent mental disorders, such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and severe depression, present functional and intellectual impairments that compromise their ability to perform activities and performance. The promotion of the Brazilian Inclusion Law to people with severe mental disorders, recognizing them as people with psychosocial disabilities, provides an opportunity for people with mental disorders to have their fundamental rights and guarantees, equality of access and participation that favor the process of inclusion and psychosocial rehabilitation for the strengthening of autonomy, quality of life and community bonds.
