WRAP Facilitator Training

Thousands of people across the United States and around the world have trained as WRAP® Facilitators. These people are changing the mental health system to honor people’s recovery journeys. This course models the behavior of a facilitator in a WRAP class and stresses authenticity and unconditional high regard, as well as a strong set of values and ethics to guide your work.

This training is appropriate for anyone who would like to lead  WRAP groups, work with others to develop their own WRAP and give presentations on mental health recovery related issues to groups or organizations.  Attendees are expected to have a solid working knowledge of WRAP and share their experiential knowledge of how WRAP can work.

Getting a Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP®) Program Started

Strong values and ethics are the cornerstone of all Copeland Center trainings. Facilitators must understand these ethics before leading Mental Health Recovery and WRAP groups and workshops to ensure a supportive learning environment.

The Copeland Center has limited scholarship funds to cover partial scholarships. If you are seeking financial assistance, it is a good idea to contact others who might be able to help.

The Copeland Center for Wellness and Recovery has been working for many years with diverse facilitators from around the world and across the life span. This gives us the unique ability to meet various needs by tailoring wokshops, coaching, and consultations to help you reach your transformation goals.

"The impact that this Wellness Recovery Action Plan training is already having on my life and on the way I dealt with 2 clients already this morning is nothing short of profound.  The group, especially colleagues in HCRS who I pass every day, are newly connected with each other in a way hard to describe.  Moreover, I believe that everyone at HCRS must have the opportunity to discover this information and training. It is not a document or book we can stick in our bulging folders or on the shelf of myriad 'how to' literature--- it is an experience.

Our organization is committed to weaving Wellness Recovery Action Planning into the fabric of our system of care, so we can provide alternatives and a holistic framework to support individuals through their journey towards wellness and recovery."
