In March 2023, Piedmont began its first structured experience with the implementation of the primary care psychologist while waiting pending national legislation to formalise the role of the primary care psychologist. Approximately 70 psychologists are working in health districts and are coordinated by psychological services. The primary care psychologist service has been promoted through the contribution of the Piedmont Order of Psychologists, which has also called for evaluation and monitoring of the service, as well as in-service training for the psychologists involved. This service responds to a widespread need within the population for psychological support due to the increase psychological discomfort that require an appropriate and easily accessible response.

Keywords: primary care psychologist; primary assistance; cultural turning point; psychological discomfort; population.
