Volunteers of America offers online program to help Veterans experiencing moral injury

The nonprofit group Volunteers of America (VOA) recognizes the challenges Veterans often face in confronting moral injury, which is essentially a conflict with one’s personal code of morality. For instance, a Veteran may feel guilt, shame, distress, or self-condemnation for violating his or her moral beliefs in combat by killing someone, witnessing death, or failing to prevent the immoral acts of others. VOA is offering Veterans free access to an online program that allows them to share their stories of moral injury and to connect with and support other Veterans.
