How to Support Whole Health

VA is committed to a Whole Health approach that will empower, equip, and treat you based on your preferences and priorities.

Whole Health starts with a simple question: What matters to you? Starting with this question, VA focuses on helping you achieve and maintain your best all-around health and well-being driven by what is important to you. Whether that means awakening each day free of pain, finding a job, or simply enjoying time with family, it is your choice.
