Supporting expectant mothers and mums with infants up to one year experiencing emotional health and wellbeing difficulties
Becoming a mum can be an exhausting and daunting experience which might impact on your emotional health and wellbeing. The Mums Wellness Project offers an individualised 1-1 WRAP Programme to support mothers and expectant mothers to help manage difficult feelings and develop action plans to help them feel better.
The programme is delivered in your own home or locally for 8 to 10 weeks with sessions lasting approximately an hour.
What is WRAP?
WRAP or Wellness Recovery Action Plan, is used world-wide by people who are dealing with all kinds of health and life challenges.
WRAP was developed by a group of people with mental health difficulties. They learned to identify the things that they can do to feel better and stay well. These personal resources are “Wellness Tools.”
You can use your Wellness Tools to help you feel better every day, to get well and stay well. For many people, using WRAP has resulted in recovery and long-term health.
