The public health and the community psychiatry emerge, and they reach their moments of more development, mainly in times of social sensibility, and they impoverish when the social knot weakens. In this article the relationship between public health and psychiatric clinic is analysed, following the different phases described for both disciplines, from the origins of the political founder project of the contemporary age. The old debates between the psychological medicine and the medicine of the lesion and between the consideration of the collective or the individualisation of falling ill and the consequent forms of organising the sanitary attendance are related.
