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 became a certified WRAP facilitator in June 2017 after being introduced to the program in 2016 by the Mental Health Association of Central Florida. In the future, I plan on obtaining my Advance level WRAP certification. I have a Master's degree in Forensic Psychology from Nova Southeastern University. I currently work with those who have a serious mental illness and involved in the Criminal Justice system. WRAP is a wonderful tool that can be use by anyone in any situation!
I live in Vallejo California and work with people who have developmental disabilities in Sacramento California. I have been in social services most of my life as well as being a veteran and photographer, traveler and dog lover. I use WRAP to keep my anxiety in check and to be an inspiration to my staff who deal with much stress with working with people who have behavioral challenges.
I have been a Certified Recovery Peer Specialist since 2013, and work as the Training Coordinator for NAMI of Collier County's CLEAR program here in Florida. I am delighted to be a Certified WRAP Facilitator and felt "home" when I first became acquainted with WRAP. I hope to get the opportunity to share this passion for WRAP with others who are on their recovery journey.

Hi everyone. My name is Stephanie Sullivan. I'm a 31 year old single mother of an amazing autistic 10 year old boy. I'm a addict in recovery for over two years. I graduated an in-patient treatment facility where WRAP was introduced to me. It brought fire into my heart and I knew I wanted to be a part of this peer support movement that's happening now.
Stephanie works as the Respite Team Lead at the PEERS for Hope House in Houston, the first peer-run crisis respite of its kind in the state of Texas. She has been facilitating WRAP presentations and leading WRAP support groups since 2016.

Hi, my name is Steven McBride and I live in Scotland. WRAP is fairly new to me, although after attending Seminar 1 and the Co-facilitators training I was fairly quickly able to identify concepts and strategies that I have been adopting throughout my life. I get great personal satisfaction in supporting others in any way I can and feel this contributes to my ongoing wellness.
I am a state certified peer specialist and I work at Friendships Unlimited in Waukesha, which is a recovery center for adults living with mental illness. Waukesha county contracts with Lutheran Social Services (who oversees the Friendships program) to provide services to CCS consumers, and one of the services includes running WRAP groups. I am very proud and honored to have been able to be trained as a WRAP facilitator, and excited to be able to use my knowledge to assist others in their recovery journey.
As a WRAP facilitator and a Certified Recovery Peer Specialist, I lead groups and work individually with clients at Wayside House, a Women's treatment center for women. I have been working in the Mental Health and Substance Abuse field for more than 10 years and bring 25 years of personal recovery from both Mental Illness and Substance Abuse. I have a passion for working with individuals as they learn to advocate and empower themselves to develop their own tools, skills and plan for recovery.
I am very excited to become a part of the global WRAP community and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to further my facilitation skills through this process. I am continually learning and growing in my knowledge of recovery by sharing my experience, strength and hope with others. After learning the WRAP program I have great appreciation for the Values and Ethics of WRAP. It is my goal to help spread the WRAP trainings into more treatment centers, companies, and wherever WRAP can be beneficial.
