Contemporary society is a reflection of a series of transformations in the social, political, cultural and economic sphere that alter the forms of establishing social ties. The know-how in Mental Health has also undergone important and significant transformations in Brazil. It has evolved, definitively, from a model centered on the hospital reference to a model of diversified attention, community territorial base, found in the Centros de Atenção Psicossocial (Centers for Psychosocial Attention /CAPS) one of its main references. The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate how the assembly of this service suffers the effects of the described changes in the name of post modernity. The malaise, described by Freud, finds in contemporary perspective new forms of expression. This implies in new forms of modulating the psychic suffering. In this context, the body becomes the privileged stage to support these different forms of presentation of malaise, is sometimes captured by the language game of a neurobiological clinic that excludes the dimension of the subject, thus silencing its suffering.
