Abstract

Objective: To describe gender-based violence and its impact on women's mental health.

An advanced search was used through the Virtual Health Library (VHL), crossing the descriptors using the Boolean operator “AND” and “OR”.

Conclusion: It is understood that the support of the multidisciplinary team is of great importance when providing care to women who have suffered gender-based violence.
