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.
I currently reside in Tucson, AZ. I have been married for 22 years. I have two children ages 20 and 21. I pursued my certification for WRAP facilitator in the hopes to educate myself and others on how to become well and stay well. I currently work with veterans who I help navigate through many different challenges they face in life. I enjoy helping others and WRAP has provided me with some additional tools I can use to continue this work.
I heard about WRAP a couple of years ago and didn't know what it was and now today I'm a WRAP Facilitator. You have to love the irony in that. I have seen how WRAP has helped so many people and myself also. I apply aspects of WRAP to my daily professional life and personal life as well. The results are phenomenal!! This is the perfect program if you like to help people and to instill HOPE in others. Very pleased and honored to bring WRAP back to Nash and Edgecombe counties and Eastern North Carolina!
Hello, my name is Ed and I‘m a recently certified as a WRAP facilitator. I’m passionate about recovery as I live it every day and see that we can all reach what we consider to be our best versions of ourselves. I’m new to working in the Mental Health area and over the last 2 years since I changed careers I have worked with people who are Homeless and recovering from Addictions and I have worked as a Peer Support Worker with a Community Mental Health Organisation. I love meeting people and sharing stories. And I love being part of this community!
I am currently the Director of Peer Support Initiatives, and the peer-run Sarah Ann Drop-in Center, with 20 years of assisting people in both victim advocacy and mental health. The ability to use my own personal story and experience has been a large part of how I am able to connect to others. When I was introduced to WRAP, I immediately thought this was a great tool!
I am thrilled to be a part of the Laing House team and having had WRAP Facilitation Training through Self Help Connections. Having completed the Mental Health Recovery & Promotion program at NSCC, and being a huge advocate promoting wellness and recovery for those living with mental illness, Laing House and SHC is a natural fit. I am a very energetic and social individual who loves to network and meet new people in the community.
