Abstract in Portuguese
Esta pesquisa investiga a multiplicação dos diagnósticos de doenças mentais junto aos Wajãpi do Amapari e, concomitantemente, o aumento gradativo e discreto de prescrições de medicamentos psicotrópicos. A fim de compreender este fenômeno, são analisadas as explicações fornecidas pelas famílias acerca dos estados alterados de seus parentes, bem como os vários caminhos trilhados na tentativa de reversão dos mesmos. Nestes, as famílias estabelecem relações com os mais diversos agentes: pajés, médicos, psicólogos, missionários, pastores e curandeiros. Todas as relações abordadas nesse trabalho reforçam que, para os Wajãpi, só é possível viver realizando composições.

Abstract in English
This research investigates the multiplication of mental illness diagnosis among the Wajãpi of Amapari and in parallel the gradual and discrete rise in prescriptions of psychotropical medications. In order to understand this phenomenon, the study analyzes both the family explanations about the altered states of their relatives and also the different paths taken to try to reverse such states. In doing so, these families establish relations with very different agents, such as: shamans, doctors, psychologists, missionaries, pastors and healers. All the relations described in this study reinforce the idea that, to Wajãpi, it is only possible to live realizing different compositions.
