WRAP® works! It has been developed by a group of people who experience mental health and other health and lifestyle challenges. These people learned that they can identify what makes them well, and then use their own Wellness Tools to relieve difficult feelings and maintain wellness and a higher quality of life. The result has been recovery and long-term stability. Your WRAP® program is designed by you in practical, day-to-day terms, and holds the key to getting and staying well. It does not necessarily replace traditional treatments, but can be used as a compliment to any other treatment options you have chosen.
In developing your own WRAP® , you’ll identify the Wellness Tools that will most benefit you. You will learn how to use these tools when needed; every day, or when you have particular feelings or experiences. WRAP®will help you notice when things seem to be off balance in your life, and help you coordinate effective ways to get back to feeling your best. WRAP® planning also includes Crisis Planning, an Advance Directive that lets others know how you want them to respond when you cannot make decisions, take care of yourself, or keep yourself safe. You will also develop a Post Crisis plan to guide you through the often difficult time when you are healing from a crisis.
