Investing in the necessary theoretical relationship between Humanization and Mental Health Policies of the Brazilian health system, this paper argues, through the theoretical dialogue between them, the idea that the proposals set forth in such policies are coherent answers to the main contradictions of the intricate national public health system. So are presented: the theoretical basis of the aforementioned ministerial policies; their relations with the society demanded as public policy; and finally, how the combination of both provide essential contributions to the continuity of the Unified Health System (SUS). The essay methodology was used, according to updated methodological bibliography, listing authors and their contributions in order to defend the views of the authors. We conclude that the public encouragement of protagonizsm of society undermines the logic of biological training courses for health professionals and flattens human relations within the SUS, fortifying it and giving it essential reason for existence to the Brazilian society.
