WRAP is it for you?

I have been quiet on the WRAP  front – wellness recovery action plan. Only for the reason, I knew this testimonial video would be available for YOU and others who want to take their life in their hands and have a plan for if it all goes down the toilet.

<p><a href=”https://vimeo.com/153148446″>WRAP – Experiences, Benefits and Rewards</a> from <a href=”https://vimeo.com/janeyoung”>Jane Young @ earth</a> on <a href=”https://vimeo.com”>Vimeo</a&gt;.</p>

Anyway, here it is. I think it will have more of a powerful effect on those of you who do decide to watch it. Instead of me waffling about it over 12 weeks on camera. If you want to to do WRAP and are not in a physical place close to where I live. You can still do it via my WRAP page. No costs – for free.  Or you can go to the founder of  WRAP-Mary Ellan Copeland‘s website and pay for the various material (if it is not free) that can be found on this website. It all about you. It is all about what you want to get out of it.
I have found out so much about myself and what I am like, what I enjoy, what makes me happy, what keeps me well, what works, what doesn’t work, what I want people in my life to do if I have a meltdown.

  1. I can personally attest to the effectiveness of WRAP. I was in a program that taught me WRAP and I’ve found it immensely helpful, especially awareness of early warning signs. How awesome that you’re going to be a WRAP facilitator! You’ll change many people’s lives.

    • Well, This is bloody marvellous. Thank you so much for commenting on it. I can’t wait for the training to start. It is something I have been waiting to do for some time- and that has a lot of meaning to me. To be able to show others and let them WRAP too- is an honour. I think people will change their own lives. WRAP has that empowering effect ,doesn’t it?

      • WRAP is so empowering! I learned about it at a very broken time in my life and it made me feel strong again. I really like the WRAP Personal Bill of Rights, because sometimes having mental health problems can make us feel like little children not capable of making decisions for ourselves. The Bill of Rights reminds us that even when we’re sick we still have rights.

      • I do too – I love what you have just said. At the end of the day we are the experts on ourselves. Society is so quick to blame our experiences as symptoms of some mental illness or wrongness that in us and that isn’t true. We all have our own experiences and personal background and personality and traumas and abuse that have formed our own personal narrative. We all have a unique story. How we present our narrative to the world is made up of a combination of factors. labeling someone as mentally ill and condemning that person is not the right way to go about fixing all that is broken in our society. Being silenced into shame -is not the way to do it either. Trust, hope , communication and mutual respect and empathy are highly underestimated as a way of treating people.

        There is this culture that to express our emotions is wrong because it makes other people uncomfortable. We need to understand each other. Listen , identity, swap information. Just because we fall into crisis and become “unwell” doesn’t mean we can’t become well again.
        Life is a journey – all the ups and the downs – we can take charge of our lives again. When I did WRAP it transformed my whole life. I lost my way for a bit but I came back to my own WRAP – I’ve changed how I cope. That doesn’t mean I don’t have rough periods in my life, I just have other ways of looking at how I can deal with problems. Life is not easy and I know how easy it is to get stuck in old ways of coping but I also have insight into other ways of coping. It is an ongoing journey.

  4. Interesting concept. It’s good to make the person feel in charge and discover what works for them.


    • Yes. A person knows themselves better than anyone else so that persons the best person to create their own wellness plan from what make them happy,stressed out, what will happen if a crisis happens etc… It is a person centred approach. it gave me the opportunity to learn what makes me tick :0

    • Wow! small world or what. Lisa this was a true gift I was given. I got so much from it. I did blog videos- all very long on what I got out of each session.If you want you can click on the WRAP links and see the work and my own WRAP plan. I’m so excited for you. Are you based in the U.K? Me just being nosy. I’m going to share this post again. The programme deserves a bit more publicity. I did it through one of my local charities in Halifax, West Yorkshire . check out their link http://www.southwestyorkshire.nhs.uk/about-us/recovery/calderdale/. I’m looking to do more courses with them in the future. I found the staff at Hope so authentic and welcoming. In fact all the people including the volunteers are awesome. Do you mind telling me how you came across it? I understand if you wish to keep things private… me being nosy again -ha ha! If you need any advice -don’t hesitate to drop me a line or too. Anything to help…. I’m so excited for you. oh I said that already xxx DO IT! xxxxx
