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.
