Topeka Veterans Administration Hospital 20th anniversary

Mayor Charles Wright is cutting a cake to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Topeka Veterans Administration Hospital, later renamed the Colmery-O'Neil Veterans Administration Hospital. During world War II years, it was the Winter General Army Hospital. Dr. Karl Menninger is the second person from the left. The Menninger School of Psychiatry trained psychiatrists here to treat returning service men and women. In those postwar times, five to seven percent of all the psychiatrists in the U.S. and Canada were trained at Menninger. The major contribution of the school was a greater commitment to a didactic curriculum, a team approach to diagnosis and treatment, and a model of diagnostic case study outline. This philosophy of mental health care was presented by Dr. Karl Menninger in his "Manual for Psychiatric Case Study," that initiated a broad-based approach to diagnosis.
