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.
As one of the many people affected by a severe mental illness I've found that the WRAP model of recovery has served me as an important wellness tool. I'd be happy to give back to my community by facilitating a group in the San Diego area.

Barbara’s journey with mental illness began in 1989, when she was diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder. When medications did little to help she began cycling in and out of the hospital on a frequent basis. In 1994 she was asked to join the consumer group ATAK/MI as a board member, and later was also asked to become a board member of the consumer group KYCAN. While working with these organizations she presented a wide variety of workshops and classes ranging from mental illness education to domestic violence and Dual Diagnoses groups.
Becky grew up in rural Nottinghamshire and trained to be a primary school teacher. A series of traumatic events, including abuse and a war zone, led to her struggling and reluctantly accessing the psychiatric system. Feeling isolated with a mental health diagnosis, having to take powerful sedatives and with no one to talk with who understood Becky founded a peer Support Group in Nottinghamshire which she has facilitated continuously since 1995. With peer support, reading, researching, using recovery strategies and WRAP Becky gradually reduced the use of psychiatric drugs over many years and is now living well without any of these drugs.
Greetings, my name is Benjamin Zellner Jr. I am a Combat Veteran US ARMY. Due to numerous exposure in combat I was diagnosed with PTSD. I was a Combat Medic in a rapid deployment unit. Even though I am still struggling with some symptoms, my WRAP has been doing miracles since I developed it in December 2012.
I am the Consumer who worked hard to become a Service Provider. For many years I existed in deep emotional pain, and allowed myself to be victimized by myself. Divine intervention led me to WRAP. Having developed my WRAP plan while in a state of devastation proved it's ability to guide through the healing process, and beyond. I truly believe in this process.
