WRAP Time (Wellness & Recovery Action Plan)September 19th, 2018darla
Let’s meet and learn about WRAP and work on our WRAPs together!
The Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP®), a model designed by Mary Ellen Copeland and developed by the Copeland Center, is a personalized wellness and recovery system born out of and rooted in the principle of self-determination. WRAP® is a wellness and recovery approach that helps people to 1) decrease and prevent intrusive or troubling feelings and behaviors; 2) increase personal empowerment; 3) improve quality of life, and 4) achieve their own life goals and dreams. Working with a WRAP® can help individuals to monitor uncomfortable and distressing feelings and behaviors and, through planned responses, reduce, modify, or eliminate those feelings. A WRAP® also includes plans for responses from others when an individual cannot make decisions, take care of him/herself, and/or keep him/herself safe.
Wellness Recovery Action Plan (W.R.A.P.) is an intervention that was developed by people who had been dealing with a variety of psychiatric symptoms and who were working hard to feel better and get on with their lives. W.R. A. P. has been recognized as an Evidence Based Practice in the field of mental health recovery and is widely used around the world primarily by and for people with mental illnesses of varying severity.
The work of W. R. A. P. is rooted in a belief in equality, based on self-determination, and offers a mutual learning model where people work together to increase understanding and promote wellness. W. R. A. P. helps participants take control of their recovery by developing their own plan for healing and to create their own crisis plan for others to follow on their behalf should the need arise.
