Very big question: Spiritual health is a term which can be defined in many ways. I am not sure how you are using it here. In general, spiritual health relates to feeling connected to a community or the larger universe . This may or may not involve a specific religion or conception of God, but it could. A sense of being a part of something larger than oneself is another aspect. Many experiences can affect this.
