Explore Spiritual Care
Spiritual health is essential. It greatly impacts physical health, well-being and quality of life. Just as medical professionals care for bodies and minds, spiritual care practitioners contribute to the overall care of individuals.
The World Health Organization defines the four dimensions of well-being as physical, social, mental and spiritual health. The spiritual dimension “is not material in nature, but belongs to the realm of ideas, beliefs, values, and ethics that have arisen in the minds and conscience of human beings, particularly ennobling ideas.”5
