Description

Objective: to produce a mental health podcast with young people from urban poverty contexts , based on their priority, on the processes of individual and social dimensions regarding suicidal behavior. Method: project approved by the applicant institution. Qualitative research developed through action research. The theoretical reference of choice is intersectionality, which reflects the multiplicities of differentiations that, articulating with gender, permeate the social. This approach does not emphasize the determinations of phenomena only on the economic basis, but also from other social markers, since several inequality aspects are now recognized as influencing the subjects' daily practices. The unit selected will be the State School, which belongs to the East Education Board 2, located in the Itaim Paulista neighborhood, east side of São Paulo (SP) - Brazil. Data collection will be performed through workshops - group technique that allows data collection in participatory research. All workshops will be recorded and filmed for further analysis. The instruments and methods of data collection will occur through interviews, field journal and different participatory strategies during the development of the workshops. The interviews will take place according to the questionnaire that apprehends the Social Reproduction Index (SRI), which analyzes the different dimensions of the social life of the groups. It is a tool capable of apprehending the differences of social reproduction that characterize the social classes that are part of a given territory, being able to show the different epidemiological profiles of families, even if they are living in the same micro space. This differentiation enables the planning of educational or other actions. The field journal used to make a dense description of what was observed in the field, written and/or recorded immediately to the field activity. Data processing: the workshops will be transcribed and inserted in the QSRNvivo software, used for text analysis and other materials, such as videos and audios. It is a useful technological tool for qualitative research to organize and analyze data production, which facilitates analysis, since the software is unable to understand the results. Analysis: will be followed a multilevel analysis, which considers the identity construction of the subjects, the symbolic representations and the social structure in which the participants are immersed.
