Moral Injury refers to the experience of enduring negative moral emotions - guilt, shame, contempt and anger - that results from the betrayal, violation or suppression of deeply held moral values. Moral Injury involves a profound sense of broken trust in ourselves, our leaders, governments and institutions to act in just and morally "good" ways. First observed in military veterans, Moral Injury is now recognised in healthcare workers, the emergency services, and law enforcement personnel.
