What is Wellness Recovery Action Planning WRAP?
WRAP is a simple evidenced based, self-management tool which helps people gain more control over their wellbeing. It is intended to help individuals maintain their wellness and manage life’s challenges.

Who created WRAP?

Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) was co-developed by Mary Ellen Copeland and peers. It was based on a wealth of research of people’s own lived experience of mental health Recovery and what helped them. See for more information.

This course explores the different sections of a WRAP from a personal perspective, equipping you with the knowledge to move on to fully complete a WRAP either individually or with support.

Why become a WRAP facilitator?

WRAP is the only evidenced based recovery self-management tool it has been around for over 20 years and is still going strong. WRAP courses are our most popular and the feedback we receive from students about the difference it has made to their lives is inspiring to hear. Becoming a WRAP facilitator will enable you to offer WRAP in groups and 1:1 sessions.

The facilitator course is excellent for personal and professional development. Previous students have said that it helped them to:

  • Gain a really good understanding of recovery
  • Develop presentation and facilitation skills
  • Develop group skills
  • Gain the skills to practically use WRAP and teach others how to develop a WRAP
  • Build confidence to tell others about WRAP either informally or as a presentation
  • Gain a good understanding about crisis planning
  • Gain knowledge of how the principles of WRAP can be applied to a team


This 5 day course is accredited by the ‘Copeland Centre’ and will provide you with the skills and materials you will need to facilitate the evidence based WRAP Seminar 1 classes.
