This paper investigates the relationship between therapeutic accompaniment , psychoanalytic theory and community psychiatry. Different domains reveal a way to build clinical attitude, organize assistance and focus on the experience of the Unconscious. Interventions in the field of community psychiatry are complementary to psychopharmacotherapy conduct, depending indirectly on environmental, social and family factors. Aspects of the contemporary clinical scene acknowledge the partnership between TA and psychoanalysis in length, being able to renew institutional landscape, seeking contact with daily life of patients and their psychological distress on the spot. It is definitely necessary to create, develop and improve home nursing, pertaining to everyday life spaces that are closely linked to practices of public health. It is possible to acknowledge that this incipient, however promising, articulation invites practices of community intervention, mobilizing intensive care actions, common to the field of psychiatry and psychoanalysis, even though non-hegemonic in any of these disciplines. TA is organized from caring but always requires some care technology.We conclude that the TA presents a multifaceted identity, situating its practice in the assistance-public health relationship.
