WRAP® is a self-designed, personalized wellness process that helps to manage a person’s stress, mental health and life issues. WRAP® has been studied extensively in rigorous research projects, and is listed in the US National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices.
WRAP® will empower you to:
• Incorporate five key concepts of recovery (hope, personal responsibility, education, self-advocacy, and support) into one’s daily life. • Create and organize a list of wellness tools, including activities to help the person feel better when they are experiencing health difficulties. • Develop an advance directive that allows for family members or other supporters to help when the need for external help arises. • Formulate a post-crisis plan to promote a return to overall health and wellness. Numerous research studies have shown the effectiveness of the WRAP® approach, where WRAP® participants have shown significant improvements in several important areas:
• Reduction in severity and number of symptoms of mental challenges • Increased feelings of hopefulness • Increased personal confidence • Greater willingness to ask for help • Better goal orientation • Greater freedom from symptom domination • Better overall physical and mental health
