Description

VA clinical psychologist Dr. Diane Castillo was a speaker at the World Health Organization Expert Group Meeting on Mental Well-being, Disability and Humanitarian Action in Manila, Philippines in January. Dr. Castillo is the treatment core center director at VA's VISN 17 Center of Excellence for Research on Returning War Veterans based in Waco, Texas. She was asked to speak at the World Health Organization meeting about alleviating PTSD after emergencies. Seven to 10 representatives from academic institutions, United Nations' agencies, governmental and non-governmental organizations were invited in their individual capacity to participate in the meeting. The Expert Group Meeting was not open to the public, so VISN 17 Public Affairs Officer Kathryn Gifford interviewed Dr. Castillo upon her return and Temple, Texas, VA Medical Center videographers Stefan Green and Dean Clark recorded it for us. Dr. Castillo discussed her talk and work to help stem the growing number mental health conditions experienced worldwide.
