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 am in recovery from addiction and mental illness. I began working in the field of helping others like myself 2011. I have taken a huge interested in the field on mental illness/substance abuse. I was introduced to WRAP almost 2 years ago and applied it to my life immediately. These tools have opened up more for me to work on in my own personal recovery. I hope to help more people in my community apply this planning to their own life.

I became a certified WRAP facilitator in October of 2015 after being introduced to the program at the 2015 FADAA Conference in Orlando, Florida. I have my Master's degree in Mental Health Counseling from Nova Southeastern University and have worked in primarily trauma-focused environments including suicide prevention. WRAP is a great tool for those maintaining recovery, as well as individuals who do not identify as having a mental illness. It can be particularly beneficial to those of us in the "helping professions" as we tend to neglect our own wellness for the sake of helping others. "You can not pour from an empty cup" - self-care is of the utmost importance!
My name is Brenda Lechner and I have worked as a FPSS and Pss for the last 4 years. I have my own mental health recovery story and I also have 2 children who have mental health issues that we work daily on to get them into recovery.
I live my life for others in need. My life in recovery has more than opened my eyes to being altruistic and expecting nothing in return. I will do all in my power to remain this way...
My name is Cailyn Fleury and I currently work for Rutland Mental Health as a residential recovery specialist and at Howard Center for the Park Street program as a residential counselor. My husband and I live in Florence VT with our dog, cat, chickens and two ducks. I first learned about WRAP through Rutland Mental Health and sat in on a couple of the groups. In March 2017 I joined a three day WRAP group to gain more of an understanding about the program. Not only did the program help me to better understand the people I work with but I learned a lot about myself. I have started to implement the WRAP I made and it has been very helpful in my day to day life.
