Although many studies about Psychology School-Clinics have been conducted in Brazil, there are few in Rio Grande do Sul. So that, this paper is a survey's research about sociodemographic and clinical characteristics of people who reached out for psychological service in 2004 at 10 Psychology School-Clinics in metropolitan area of Porto Alegre. The results showed similarity between most of other studies that had been previously conducted in Brazil and the present one, allowing the inference of two typical profiles in Psychology School-Clinics in Brazil: children, male, referred by schools because of learning or behavior problems and young women, who sought, on their own initiative, psychological consultation due to affective problems. It is also important to mention how difficult it is to research about this topic, because there's no standardized, adequate and well-filled out inpatient registration in Psychology School-Clinics.
