ABSTRACT The present article intends to go further in the meaning of mental ilness acording to the psychoanalytic theory approach. Discuss the sense of mental illness represents a challenge to the professionals who deal directly with the people affected by it. However, it´s not our intention to consider the mental illness or the mental ill as na isolated entity but include them in the person´s "willcome" movement, a self divided by the unconscious.

Keywords : Mental illness; Psychoanalical theory; Unconscious.
