Wellness Recovery Action Plan® (WRAP) is an evidence-based practice developed by the Copeland Center for Wellness and Recovery. This introductory course was initially designed for people living with mental health issues but has since been found to be equally effective for others including people living with a history of substance abuse, problematic behaviors or any life challenge for which improvement is desired. In WRAP® participants are guided through the process of creating their own WRAP through the identification of personal wellness tools. Learners are introduced to recovery concepts and taught practical ways to incorporate them in daily life. In addition, learners are taught to identify their personal triggers, early warning signs and develop action plans to reduce or avoid escalation. Finally, learners develop a crisis plan and post crisis plan. Learners who complete Intro to WRAP I, are authorized to facilitate one-on-one WRAP sessions. Additionally this training session fulfills the prerequisite for the WRAP® Seminar II: WRAP Facilitator Training. To qualify for this scholarship funded training, you must: (a) Be a Philadelphia resident; (b) Identify as a Peer or person with lived experience. Space is limited and qualifying participants will be selected on a first come first served basis.
