We live in an era when depression, and anxiety is at an all time high. A recent statistic says that one in five people in Canada will struggle with a mental illness. Only one in three people struggling seek support.
We are bombarded with responsibilities that can seem too much to bear. There are limits to how much we can do. If we are withdrawing more than we are depositing, we are going to run into trouble. Overdraft is imminent.
However when we have the right tools, we can boost our personal resilience and see our lives transformed by self-mastery, mindfulness and self-awareness.
WRAP (Wellness Recovery Action Plan) is a wellness program that encourages personal responsibility, positive mental health, self-determination, self-mastery and self-awareness for all demographics.
WRAP® is an evidenced-based, facilitated group learning process that helps participants create their own wellness plans. This plan is a tool that helps them make healthy choices and face life’s challenges with courage and insight.
All significant growth comes from within.
Wellness Recovery Action Plan® was created by Mary Ellen Copeland along with a group of people who were all dealing with mental health challenges. They created a powerful tool to take control of their own health and see recovery happen in their lives. Since then WRAP® has become an evidence-based best practice in the field of mental health. It was deliberately written so that it can be utilized by anyone, not just those dealing with mental illness. People struggling with physical illnesses or addictions can use it. So can people who are trying to reach a life goal.
People of all ages can use WRAP: children, teens, and adults. Families and teams can use WRAP. Organizations and programs frequently use WRAP as a tool to keep the team well. Support staff and clinicians can use WRAP as a tool for self-care. WRAP can help prevent burnout.
