NATIONAL ALLIANCE TO END VETERAN SUICIDE®

Whole Health

Our whole health initiative is in sync with that of the VA. Our programs begin with Education where we ask our Veterans to take on a new way of seeing Responsibility, resulting in removing the constraints from their past. Experience our Operation Veteran Freedom workshop for your personal breakthroughs then join us by creating a Race 2 Save Veteran Lives.

Whole health, also known as “Personalized, Proactive, Patient-driven Care," is an approach to health care that empowers and equips people to take charge of their health and well-being and to live their life to the fullest. The Whole Health System includes conventional treatment, but also focuses on self-empowerment, self-healing, and self-care.

Our whole health initiative is based upon our commitment that:
NA2EVS listens for and reliably delivers what makes a real difference in what Veterans are dealing with and what really matters to them.

The image below is the Circle of Health and in the center, it lists out the Self-Care Practices. To the right we have mapped our programs or those of our partners.

      The Circle of Health has four key elements:

Me: The equation begins with you, the “Me” at the center. Your story is unique and your whole health begins with what matters to you.
Self-Care: Each of us has the power to impact our well-being. Whole Health offers the skills and support you need to make the changes you want.
Professional Care: Your health team is there to help with the prevention and treatment of disease and illness.
Community: Just as there is a “Me” at the center of the circle, there is a “We” that enfolds it. Your Community is the people and groups you connect with.
