In a sample of 389 student veterans, we employed regression to establish that the meaningfulness of occupation mediated the relationship between social and community-based occupation and both psychological and subjective well-being. Occupation was also associated with greater coping skills and social support, in turn contributing to greater psychological and subjective well-being, respectively. Findings support OTs’ use of occupation to promote veterans’ well-being.
