DIMENSTEIN, Magda et al. Forms of subjectivation and precariousness of life: Contradictions in rural settings. Estud. psicol. (Natal) [online]. 2019, vol.24, n.1, pp. 82-89. ISSN 1413-294X.

This theoretical paper aims to examine some of the interfaces between rural settings and the field of mental health. First, living conditions in rural regions will be discussed, exploring rurality from a perspective of vulnerability and its impact on psychological health. Next, we will expand this approach by analyzing other analytical perspectives, namely Judith Butler's (2018) essay on the precariousness of life and Mbembe's (2018) necropolitics. Finally, this paper seeks to contribute to research on the living conditions and mental health of rural populations, and to promote territorial practices. Consideration will also be given to the specific lifestyles and needs of this community - without disregarding deteriorating conditions of inequality and insecurity arising from the conservative political discourse underway in our society.

Palavras-chave : rural settings; mental health; vulnerability; precariousness of life.
