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.
Kristen King, MPS, MBA, lives in America's highest city, Leadville, CO, with her husband and their young twins. She discovered WRAP through a peer support group after receiving a series of diagnoses that didn't seem right and a series of frustrating, and ineffective treatment plans that had nothing to do with the life she wanted to create for herself and her family. Kristen believes the ability to live authentically in all areas is a basic human right, and she took charge of her own wellness with WRAP.

Hello my name is Ms. La Tasha Mills, CRPS-A. I have recently been certified as a WRAP Facilitator. I will be celebrating 5 years of recovery on June 11, 2018 and I am so grateful to have been introduced to WRAP in my second year of recovery. Since then I have realized the true value of my life and WRAP has given me a New perspective on what it really means to recover. I have learned to apply the key concepts to every aspect of my life and it gives me a tremendous sense of motivation when I can share what I have learned with my Peers.

I live everyday... yet for a brief moment I stepped out on life, discovering that my greatest power was also my kryptonite... Love. It took the love of a women who was my peer support, to rediscover who needed love most and that was me. Life is not a clear road, it has bumps and holes, and sometimes it rains; I now am successful at pulling out my umbrella, not only big enough for me but a crowd.

Lei Portugal believes that “recovery” is a fluid journey rather than a final destination. Often heard describing herself as being over-qualified with lived experience Lei brings humor, positivity and “realness” to her relationships and the groups that she facilitates. As a current Peer Recovery Coach at Telecare Corporation, member of The Copeland Center, NAMI, Project Return, CCAPP and iNaps and newly-certified WRAP Facilitator, Lei hope to bring all of her experience, strength and hope to everyone she supports.
