What are the aims of WRAP?
WRAP (Wellness Recovery Action Planning) helps you to stay as well as possible and is based on 5 key recovery concepts: hope; personal responsibility; support; self-advocacy; and education. WRAP can assist you to improve your overall quality of life. In developing your WRAP you’ll identify the Wellness Tools that will most benefit you.
You will learn how to use these tools when needed; every day, or when you have particular feelings or experiences. WRAP will help you notice when things seem to be off balance in your life, and help you coordinate effective ways to get back to feeling your best. WRAP also includes Crisis Planning and an Advance Directive that lets others know how you want them to respond when you cannot make decisions, take care of yourself, or keep yourself safe. You will also develop a Post Crisis plan to guide you through the often difficult time when you are healing from a crisis.
Who is WRAP for?
WRAP is for all who have a professional or personal interest in mental health and anybody who would like to increase their personal empowerment; improve their quality of life; build self-esteem; or would like something to assist them in achieving life goals. WRAP does not necessarily replace traditional treatments, but can be used as a compliment to any other treatment options.
WRAP is fluid, holistic and pliable: as well as being a valuable tool for mental health and wellbeing it can apply to recovering from and dealing with the effects of trauma, bereavement, addictions and physical illnesses. Some elements of WRAP focus on peer support and peer education.
On: Thursday 16 January 2014 until Thursday 30 January 2014 9.30am - 1.30pm (3 Sessions)
