Resumo

Studying pathways to mental health care allows an understanding of the patterns of help seeking of a specific population, which is achieved by analyzing the characteristics of the patients, the contacts made with health careers and the delays between each contact, among other variables. For this purpose, a systematized questionnaire designed to gather this data is needed. One of these instruments, called “Encounter Form”, created by the World Health Organization to be used in the first pathways to mental health care study, is presented here translated to Portuguese.
