Title: Diagnostic As First Name [diagnóstico Como Nome Próprio]
Author: Baroni D.P.M.

Abstract: This article presents some reflections on mental health, considered in this context as historical production in correlation with the emergence of psychiatry and its object - mental disease. It intends to discuss, along with the emergence of this knowledge that creates forms of life to the subject, the process of identification with a diagnostic name and other questions that pass through the thematic of medicalization, introducing the mental health's discussion in a critical perspective. To think about the production of other names to the subject, new kinds of subjectivities, requires searching for points of resistance, where new practices of oneself in reference to the body and health can conduce to new names for health.
