Whole Health began as a grassroots effort to transform health care one individual at at time—and it’s working. Whole Health has contributed to an ongoing cultural shift in perspective within health care teams, medical centers, and beyond. Clinicians and patients shared the Whole Health vision with friends and family members. Community members and practitioners developed partnership programs focused on Whole Health. Veterans took on leadership roles to offer peer support for other Veterans interested in transforming their health and life. Across the country, Whole Health continues to evolve as each new person incorporates their own knowledge and experience.
