Suicide among natives, allows understanding mental illness as a saturation of adversity; the experience of a place in the world strangled by a cultural ethos immersed in violence, leads to suicide as a rite of passage towards reverie life. In this sense, therapy is a kind of relationship with the other, in which tangetiality, subjectivity and subjunctive social effects support such a relationship towards flexibility.
