VA’s Whole Health approach starts with a simple question: What matters most to you? From here, VA professionals work in partnership with Veterans to explore their life mission, values, and goals. This exploration allows Veterans to create a Personal Health Plan which they can use as a structure to work towards an answer to the question, What matters most to you? The System then supports the Veteran in carrying out that plan with peer-led groups, whole health clinical care, and the availability of complementary and integrative approaches like acupuncture, meditation, yoga, and tai chi
