It's a WRAP (Wellness Recovery Action Plan)

The Wellness Recovery Action Plan is a framework with which you can develop an effective approach to overcoming distressing symptoms, and unhelpful behaviour patterns. It is a tool with which you can get more control over your problems.

WRAP was originally developed by Mary Ellen

Copleand and a group of mental health service users who wanted to work

on their own recovery – this is what they found worked for them.

Developing your own WRAP will take time, it can be done alone, but many

find it very valuable to have a supporter – someone they trust, and work

on it together.

As you develop your WRAP it can become a practical support for your

recovery which you refer to daily, as a reminder and guide, and also turn

to at times of difficulty. It is designed as an aid for learning about

yourself, what helps and what doesn’t, and how to get progressively more

in control of your life and your experience. It also includes instructions on

developing a crisis plan, as a means of guiding others on how best to make

decisions for you and to take care of you, for those times when your

problems and symptoms have made it very difficult for you to do this for

yourself. Once you are committed to your own recovery, however things

work out, they can be an opportunity for learning more about yourself,

and improving your WRAP.
