Moral Injury

Moral injury is a wound of the soul that can have devastating effects on the spirit, mind, and body. It is a natural human response to a traumatic event or events. Though not a diagnosable psychological disorder, when left unresolved moral injury can play a significant role in the manifested symptoms of mental health problems.
