Abstract: Spiritual Wellness is an important part of a person's wellbeing. To ensure that the person's health is in balance, a person must be physically, mentally and spiritually healthy. The current health system puts emphasis on the physical and mental health of a person, but is ill equipped to deal with the spiritual needs of a person. My experience over the past 8 years is that many of the people that suffer from psychological problems are as a result of spiritual imbalance or 'spiritual injury'.Generally I find that a person suffering from 'spiritual injury' take a lot longer to recover (heal) because there are no services within the mental health system to deal with such 'injury' or 'illness'.
