Empowering People to Take Control of Their Wellness
The Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP®) is a SAMHSA evidenced based practice self management tool. WRAP has been widely-acclaimed by behavioral health leaders as an effective means to help people reduce the duration and frequency of distressing feelings and troubling behaviors. WRAP® is a highly individualized plan that helps individuals maintain their overall wellness. The combination of specific responses and wellness tools promotes empowerment and enables people to live their best life. WRAP® also includes a plan that informs supporters on how to assist individuals during a crisis.
DBHIDS offers a comprehensive training program to help people develop a personal WRAP® and facilitate WRAP® groups. Seminar I: WRAP® and Mental Health Recovery training provides an orientation to WRAP concepts and gives people an opportunity to develop their own WRAP®. Seminar II: WRAP® Facilitator training provides individuals with techniques on to effectively facilitate WRAP and the opportunity to became a certified WRAP® Facilitator. Both programs are offered throughout the year.
