Debates regarding mental health have become prominent in the late nineteenth century with the emergence of psychiatry as a medical specialty and remained on the agenda throughout the twentieth century. A context of intense urban transformations, in which aspects related to modernization and progress were placed, deepening the search for a sanitized city ruled by order. Is thinking about such questions that this research is developed, having as its primary source the records of Psychiatric Hospital Juquery and Sanitarium Pinel Pirituba, founded in 1898 and 1929, respectively. Intends to identify the internal profile of the considered mentally ill and the possible reasons that designated a portion of the population isolation, observing similar and different characteristics between patients, who were these, and the circumstances which were subject, specifically in the time frame from 1929 to 1937, during which both institutions were under the psychiatrist Antonio Carlos Pacheco e Silva, and the same also founder of Pinel.
