Abstract

ABSTRACT: Over a million veterans seek mental healthcare through the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) every year. Many voice challenges to their spiritual beliefs, especially after deployment. Research supports that integrating spiritual care into mental health interventions improves the ability of veterans to cope. Mental health practitioners-healthcare professionals specializing in mental health-are key to incorporating spirituality into the mental healthcare of veterans, as well as collaborating with VHA chaplains.
