Wellness Recovery Action Planning (WRAP) course starting in April

A Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) facilitator training course will be taking place over five days from the 21st to the 26th of April 2017.

What is WRAP?

WRAP is a prevention and wellness process used by people to get well, stay well and improve their overall mental health and well-being. It was developed in 1997 by a group of people who were searching for ways to manage their own mental illnesses. It is now commonly used by people in many different circumstances to address physical health, mental health and other issues in life.
