“Either everyone is crazy or no one is!”: pondering possibilities of articulation between disability and madness

This study aims to approach the possibilities of articulation between the experience of disability and the issue denominated by the bio-psycho-medical system of mental health, from an anthropological perspective. The focus of the analysis is to look at the public policies of the area and to conduct an analysis of the narratives of people diagnosed as having some kind of mental or psychological disorder. The approach centers itself on the issues of construction of the person, the body and the subjectivity, so as to understand how these categories articulate in processes of pathologization of the disability and of madness on one hand, and on the other hand in the manifestation of the so called “psychosocial disability” as a political identity.
