This article is the first part of an extensive and rigorous reflection regarding identity, diversity, migration and its effects on the mental health of people and their communities. Even though identity is a core theme of psychoanalytical theory, the approach here covers this concept across-the-board while also including conceptualizations of sociology, history, literature and poetry. This allows for a complementary point of view where the identities mark where we start our journey. Understanding the phases of human growth and the suffering that it frequently implies, is, from beginning to end, the purpose of this piece. The second part will be published consecutively in the next issue of Intercanvis.
