If you are struggling with a mental health challenge—such as depression or anxiety—you are not alone. More than 80% of American adults are living with some form of mental health issue. And it’s important to get help, because good mental health is key to your overall health. Our Wellness Recovery Action Plan (or WRAP®) can help give you the support, tips, and advice you need from people who are also working toward emotional well-being.
Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP®)
A self-designed prevention and wellness process that anyone can use to get well, stay well, and make life the way you want it to be.
The program is designed to help you:
This program can also help supporters or caregivers learn how to respond when a person who is struggling cannot make decisions, take care of themselves, or keep themselves safe.
WRAP® was developed by a group of people who successfully overcame their mental health challenges. Workshop leaders are people who have already developed their own WRAP® and who have received special training in order to help others help themselves.
The WRAP® workshop is a
24-hour-long program, offered over several weeks.
People struggling with mental health challenges, and their supporters or caregivers.
Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP®) programs are for anyone who has mental health difficulties or is struggling to incorporate wellness tools and strategies into their lives. Designed in Vermont at the Copeland Center with input from the Vermont Psychiatric Survivors and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, these workshops focus on developing action plans, skills for self-management and recovery. Each Wellness Recovery Action Plan workshop is led by two facilitators, one or both of whom are peers in recovery. The workshop is composed of 24 hours of content, but may be offered in either four 6-hour sessions, six 4-hour sessions or eight 3-hour sessions.
