War Surgery and Medicine



When psychoneurotics are returned to New Zealand provision should be made for examination by a psychiatrist and advice and guidance given during the difficult period of settling back again into civilian life. The Rehabilitation Department did invaluable work in this direction in the guidance and help of returned men and in the provision of training centres where men could learn fresh trades suited to their disabilities, physical or nervous. Congenial work, not a pension, is the best form of treatment as it encourages the re-establishment of self-esteem and confidence.
