We recognize that currently new historical conditions make Mental Health a topic of growing concern both at the level of public policy and theoretical orientations. In the context of current changes, social policies, and health policies in particular, are transformed into the redefinition of the functions of the State. Then, it is proposed to analyze the avatars and social, political, cultural, and economic contexts, through which Argentina?s history and formulations and applications of public policies in mental health have gone through, taking as a period since 1954 the professionalization of Psychology until the formulation of the Mental Health Law in 2010, in order to historicize the implications that arose during this period.
