The author suggests to consider some important hidden connections in Global Mental Health GMH discourse and interventions, above all the political meaning of suffering and symptoms, the power of psychiatric diagnostic categories The author suggests to consider some important hidden connections in Global Mental Health GMH discourse and interventions, above all the political meaning of suffering and symptoms, the power of psychiatric diagnostic categories both Western and traditional to name and to occult at once other conflicts, and the implicit criticism expressed by so-called local healing knowledge and its epistemologies.

These issues, by emphasizing the importance to explore other ontologies, help to understand the perplexity and resistance that GMH and its agenda meet among many scholars and professionals, who denounce the risks of reproducing and globalizing Western hegemonic values concerning health, illness, and healing.

Based on narratives of asylum-seekers from sub-Saharan Africa in northern Italy, in this article I analyze the narrative strategies used by immigrants to meet the eligibility criteria established by asylum law.

For many of them, this For many of them, this means " arranging " biographical details within what I call " a moral economy of lying. I then examine the arbitrariness and the bureaucratic violence of the asylum evaluation process, and the role of these procedures in the making of nation-language and current technologies of citizenship.

Finally, I consider the politics of testification, recognition, and memory these discourses and practices combine to shape.

Traumatic pasts and the historical imagination: Symptoms of loss, postcolonial suffering, and counter-memories among African migrants more.

This work aims to rethink the relationship between anthropology and cultural psychiatry from a historical perspective, through reflections on the dynamics of forgetting and remembering in the context of migration. While migrants' symptoms While migrants' symptoms often bear cultural hallmarks of suffering, they also reveal images of a traumatic history, which resurface in moments of danger, uncertainty, and crisis.

I claim these symptoms are allegories of a dispossessed past, and can be interpreted as counter-memories, as " palimpsests " of an eclipsed script. Trauma symptoms keep returning to a collective past, and thus can be considered a particular form of historical consciousness. Psychiatric diagnoses may obscure these counter-memories. In particular, the diagnostic category of posttraumatic stress disorder that is commonly attached to traumatic experiences in current clinical practice recognizes the truth of individual traumatic events, but at the same time contributes to concealing the political, racial, and historical roots of suffering.
