Mums Wellness Project

Supporting expectant mothers, partners and mums with infants up to three years 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, partners and expectant mothers to help manage difficult feelings and develop action plans to help them feel better.

Due to the covid-19 situation, mum can choose face-to-face support or online support.  WRAP sessions are provided face-to-face, telephone or ZOOM. A hard copy of the WRAP booklet is available by post if requested to ensure you and your support worker can address the various topics that are of benefit to you the mum.

Additional wellness support for mums & children 11 – 13yrs 

MindWise has an extention of the project with CAWT in the SHSCT and WHSCT (Omagh & Fermanagh) areas. Support is available for the parents and caregivers 11 – 13 years olds and their parents / caregivers. 

New funding announced for the Family & Mums Wellness projects

The Trusthouse Charitable Foundation of £2000 is due to support group WRAP programmes. This has been postponed due to the ongoing covid-19 situation and the second national lockdown, however we look forward to services re-starting as the relaxation of restrictions allow. The money will go towards further support programmes for the families with 5 - 11 year old children, expectant and new mums. 
 
 

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.
