What is Whole Health?

Whole Health is VA’s approach to care that supports your health and well-being. Whole Health centers around what matters to you, not what is the matter with you. This means your health team will get to know you as a person, before working with you to develop a personalized health plan based on your values, needs, and goals.

How to Get Started

Start a conversation with your VA health team about Whole Health. Use this Brief Personal Health Inventory to start and guide the discussion of your hopes, desires, and goals.

VA staff and Veteran peers can also support you on your Whole Health journey too. Learn about Whole Health practices from other Veterans through the Introduction to Whole Health and Taking Charge of My Life and Health courses. Find the Whole Health contact at your VA here: Whole Health Facility Contacts.

Learn more about getting started with the Personal Health Inventory self-assessment, and Personal Health Plan and how it can shape your Well-being programs and clinical treatments.

The road to better health and well-being starts here, with you.
