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.
I have worked for NAMI Wood County for 12 years. During that time I had a turn of events in my life and was diagnosed with Bi-Polar Disorder. Through my employer I was given the opportunity to take a WRAP Class. It changed my life so much I wanted to share my experience with others by becoming a facilitator almost 7 years ago. WRAP is a class that can be taken many times over and still learn something new each time.
My journey with WRAP is just beginning. I look forward to the growth within my own use of the tools and strengthening my abilities to facilitate WRAP along with the key concepts and guidelines. I hope to share my success of wellness with others so they to can experience the hope and happiness it provides me in my life.
My name is Shelda, I am an outgoing and social person, who loves meeting new people. I'm very caring, encouraging and friendly. I have a lust for all things great in this world, great food, great friends and great adventures. My own prior recovery journey helps me to be able to approach hard-to-reach individuals from a unique perspective and they trust me knowing I have been there before myself. I offer hope to people who are just beginning their journey to there recovery path. My excellent communication abilities and compassion help reinforce recovery efforts and to instill hope to all.
I encountered Wrap a few years ago, but it was only recently that I found how incredibly helpful it can be to me and others. I volunteered for the training because I wanted to help people as I have been helped by finding my wellness toolbox. I look forward to delivering seminars and connecting with as many people as I can.

Hello from Malaysia! Specially for fellow peers in the South-east Asian region (elsewhere welcomed), I would love to facilitate for you in your recovery and resilience, by learning what WRAP 1 has to offer. I am a Certified Psychiatric Rehabilitation Practitioner since 2014, put into practice my Masters in Educational Psychology research on Supported Education since 2009, and am an invited keynote speaker for 1st World Conference on Supported Education scheduled end 2020.
I'm the Local Recovery Coordinator at a local VA medical center. I work closely with our Peer Support Specialists and that a how I was introduced to WRAP. I've witnessed how the simple, practical method of creating a WRAP can empower a person to participate fully in their life again. WRAP is an incredibly effective way to help others help themselves.
I'm working at the Lompoc Recovery Learning Center as an Assistant Supervisor where I can serve a variety of people in the community. I'm glad to become a WRAP Co-Facilitator because I see the difference and support in my life, family and community. Now I am more sensitive and open to hear different people's journeys accepting them where they are at this time.
