About the Course

Whole Health is the VA’s new approach to working with veterans and centers around what matters to a veteran, not what is the matter with a veteran. At WarriorNOW we use this training as a way to give our Mentors and facilitators more skills to deploy when they are working with a fellow veteran, especially when they are in crisis. Whole Health training is encouraged for all WarriorNOW mentors and is required for any mentor interested in facilitating Buddy Check, Whole Health groups, and other peer-led groups.

Course Objectives

After completing this training course, you will learn the following key objectives:

  • Assist the Veteran in developing a personalized health plan that is based on what matters most to the Veteran; the plan is based on the Veteran’s own goals, values, preferences, and lifestyle. The agenda is the Veteran’s.
  • Partner with the Veteran with proactively taking action toward behavior change that is both present and future-oriented.
  • Recognize that health is much broader than the absence of disease. The emphasis is on health enhancements/strengths, rather than disorders/weaknesses.
  • Support the Veteran in achieving their standard of optimal health that takes into account the mental, physical, and social well-being of the Veteran.
