The WRAP Facilitator Directory offers connection with locally trained and certified WRAP 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 WRAP Facilitator training offered by the Copeland Center or a current Advanced Level WRAP Facilitator of the Copeland Center. Once listed, refresher training requirements must be met to maintain your listing in the directory.
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 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 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 Facilitators and WRAP Facilitators. If you qualify to be listed in the directory, please contact the organization or Advanced Level WRAP Facilitator who provided your training. Current Advanced Level WRAP® Facilitators who want to list people they have trained and provided refresher course to should contact us for more information.

My name is Sarah Sorensen. I have worked in the mental health field for many years and have seen WRAP pop up several times in my career. I have seen WRAP used both correctly and incorrectly.

Hello! After struggling with my own mental illness for decades, the work I do with my WRAP has helped me recover more than I ever thought possible. Actively using my WRAP everyday, I have been able to become a WRAP facilitator, support group facilitator, state trainer for support group facilitators, a Certified Peer Support Specialist at the University of NM hospital, and a strong advocate for New Mexicans and their families affected by mental illness. I am also proud to say, it has made it possible for me to see my first grandchild.
