FRENIA. Revista de Historia de la Psiquiatría, is a scientific, independent publication, that benefits from the scientific support of the Instituto de Historia del Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (C.S.I.C.). It consists of an annual publication of about 300 pages, including one volume for each semester.

The aim of FRENIA is double: First to open an space of historical reflexion on psychiatry and disciplines focused on the study of human behaviour, and secondly to contribute to the development and implementation of the history of psychiatry.

The goal of FRENIA' writing team is to get that the analysis and the critics cover the different domains related to a more rich discipline if applied with a wide point of view, or to a narrow, tedious discipline if the point of view is hagiographic and heroic. We refuse this last approach that is more convenient to legitimize the profession and to design a teleological route of the discipline, by forgetting matters that are unpleasant to the academic psychiatry. We consider that the history, any history, should be critic and pose problems. Our hope is the magazine to contribute to the reflexion and to serve not only for the development of the own history of psychiatry, but for the professionals of the mental health and other disciplines (anthropology, history, sociology, philosophy, etc.) who from their perspective can enrich the discussion and extend the research themes.
