WRAP® for Life”

The Consumer/Family Advisory Committee is proud to announce the upcoming WRAP® for Life” workshops being offered at the VA & The Orchard.

WRAP is a self-determined plan, widely used all over the world both as a preventive strategy and as a way to address all kinds of mental health, physical health, and life issues.  These workshops include Wellness Recovery Action Plans designed to address specific issues such as smoking cessation, weight gain or loss, aging, or diabetes. WRAP for Life teaches you how to adapt WRAP for any issues you wish to address.

WRAP for Life can serve as your day-to-day guide for working on personal issues like raising your self-esteem and self-confidence, developing a strong support system, enhancing your relationships with family members and friends, making new friends, learning to be more assertive, increasing your career or vocational competencies, and enriching your life. It is used to help address issues related to “whole” health.

The participant may choose which topics that are of interest to them.  You do not have to commit to all 4 workshops

The workshops are offered at no charge to consumers/family members residing in Region 5.  Every participant will also receive the “WRAP for Life” book by Mary Ellen Copeland.  There are four specific issues to be addressed:
