What We do

Evidenced-Based Practices

  • Seminar I: Developing Your Own Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP)

The Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP®) is a personalized wellness and recovery system born out of and rooted in the principle of self-determination. WRAP® is a wellness and recovery approach that helps people to: 1) decrease and prevent intrusive or troubling feelings and behaviors; 2) increase personal empowerment; 3) improve quality of life; and 4) achieve their own life goals and dreams. Working with a WRAP® can help individuals to monitor uncomfortable and distressing feelings and behaviors and, through planned responses, reduce, modify, or eliminate those feelings. A WRAP® also includes plans for responses from others when an individual cannot make decisions, take care of him/herself, and/or keep
him/herself safe.

  • Seminar II: Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) Facilitator Training

The WRAP Facilitator training provides an experiential learning environment based on mutuality. Participants in this course will be expected to participate in interactive learning activities and demonstrate their own experience with WRAP.  To attend this training, it is expected that you have familiarity with the different parts of WRAP through completion of Seminar I: Developing Your Own WRAP. This training is

  • Person-centered Peer Support

Person-centered peer support is the process of giving and receiving inspiration and support to realize and accomplish sustained recovery from the stance that individuals diagnosed and living with mental health conditions can live a holistic and productive life of their own choosing. In the mental health community, peers offer their unique lived experience with mental health recovery and wellness to provide support focused on advocacy, education, mentoring, and motivation.
