Mental Health: Treating Trauma and PTSD in Veterans
Play • 42 min


Psychiatry is about as damning a pathology as you can imagine. You’re dealing with patients suffering from depression, anxiety, and PTSD brought on by unthinkable trauma.

But for Dr. Michael Massa, it’s a calling that brings immense fulfillment. Dr. Massa has treated veterans and the underserved around the world enabling them to live their lives to the fullest. In this episode, I talk with him about:

  • Finding fulfillment and purpose in medicine
  • Getting knighted by the Vatican and working in a Catholic convent in Jordan
  • Treating veterans with the Wounded Warrior Project
  • Approaching treatments for patients with PTSD
  • The psychological trauma of COVID-19
