The Institute of Psychiatric Research (IIP) is an organization that is part of the Mª Josefa Recio Foundation. It is located in Bilbao, in the Neurological Rehabilitation Center of the Aita Menni Hospital.
The Institute of Psychiatric Research began to be developed at the end of 1993, on the initiative of the Provincial Government of the Canonical Province of Palencia, with the purpose of developing, promoting and regulating research in the Centers of that Province. Throughout 1994 And 1995, its functions were defined in its internal organization, such as its relationship with the centers and with the Provincial Government. It is in 1995 that the Institute of Psychiatric Research is integrated into the Mª Josefa Recio Foundation which is henceforth the legal framework of the Institute.
The Institute is born to serve the research purpose of the Congregation, and accommodates its structure and functioning to the structure and functioning of it. The Foundation assumes the commission from the competences that allow articles 6 and concordant of its Statutes.
