WRAP stands for Wellness Recovery Action Plan.
The WRAP program involves an educational and planning process that is grounded in mental health recovery concepts such as hope, education, empowerment, self-advocacy, and interpersonal support and connection.
WRAP was developed by people who had been dealing with a variety mental health issues and who were working hard to feel better and get on with their lives. Dr. Mary Ellen Copeland, an internationally acclaimed author, educator and mental health advocate, initially practiced WRAP to help with her own struggles with mental health challenges. More information can be found on the WRAP website.
Within a group setting, individuals explore self-help tools (eg. peer counseling, focusing exercises, relaxation & stress reduction techniques) and resources for keeping themselves well and for helping themselves feel better in difficult times. Groups meet once a week for 8 to 10 weeks.
WRAP helps you to discover your own simple and safe wellness tools and helps you identify when you need to use them. Anyone can use WRAP to get well, stay well and make their life the way they want it to be.
