Facilitator Directory

The WRAP Co-Facilitator Directory offers a connection with locally trained and certified WRAP Co-Facilitators who can offer evidence-based practice WRAP workshops in your community.  To be listed in this directory, you must have successfully completed the five-day in-person WRAP Co-Facilitator training offered by the Copeland Center or a current Advanced Level WRAP Co-Facilitator of the Copeland Center. Once listed, refresher training requirements must be met to maintain your listing in the directory.  Due to COVID certification current as of January 1, 2020, will be maintained.

The directory is designed to fill a need for local resource availability for people seeking WRAP groups. The Copeland Center had to make a sizable investment in technology to get the registry up and running. It is primarily designed for Advanced Level WRAP Co-Facilitators to participate by purchasing bulk listings for their trainees. Because it takes investigation into each individual request that does not come directly through an Advanced Level WRAP Facilitator, the Copeland Center has to do detective work to ensure that individuals were properly trained by qualified trainers and this requires a fee. We encourage WRAP Co-Facilitators to request that their trainers contact the Copeland Center to purchase spaces in the registry and therefore eliminate the research required for an individual request and help make it as affordable as possible to both Advanced Level WRAP Co-Facilitators and WRAP Co-Facilitators.  If you qualify to be listed in the directory, please contact the organization or Advanced Level WRAP Co-Facilitator who provided your training.  Current Advanced Level WRAP® Co-Facilitators who want to list people they have trained and provided refresher courses should contact us for more information.

JoeAnn Allen

My name is JoeAnn Allen, but I was born in rural Alabama on December 10th, 1960 as JoeAnn Austin. I am the second youngest of 10 siblings born of Emma and Isaac Austin.

I took interests in mental health at a very young age because I noticed so much dysfunction in my own family and community. I realized at an early age I wanted to know ways to dissolve conflict and thought being a psychologist would help my crusade of peace within my own life and family.

Jolene Gerald

My name is Jolene. I recently moved to St. Augustine, Florida from Alaska. I’m a certified chemical dependency counselor, certified behavioral health technician, and a certified peer support specialist. I am truly passionate about helping others. Being in recovery myself, I know what it’s like to struggle with mental health issues and addiction. I just want to help others find what I have in recovery. WRAP is one of the many tools that allows me to do this.

I am a professional with a Bachelor degree in Human Services and psychology. I've been working in the field of recovery for the past 3 years helping individuals with SMI find recovery skills and a valued role. In addition to being a trained WRAP facilitator, I am a coordinator for our local recovery center, and I am a practicing peer recovery coach.
