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 stand by the power of WRAP and each individual to define their own recovery and achieve it. My own recovery has been a lifelong process I will continually work on, but the great strides I made from WRAP have given me so much insight and growth. My goal is to work with diverse populations and provide a supportive mutual learning environment so everyone can reach their full potential. My number one goal is to provide HOPE and to EMPOWER. My work has lead me to serve people with disabilities and those experiencing homelessness, and I have been called to work with those looking to improve their mental wellness.
I was first introduced to WRAP in 2014 through my job at the Mental Health Association of Central Florida as a Peer Specialist. WRAP has had a major, positive impact on my life, truly giving me structure for managing my life and coping with the challenges that naturally occur in life. Seeing the impacts it has had on my life and how well I am managing life has truly inspired me to share WRAP with others and that this really is a common sense approach and for anyone! It is my dream to reach as many willing individuals, as the Assistant Director of a peer-driven recovery community, with the HOPE WRAP has to offer; eventually hoping this becomes a statewide initiative! WRAP ROCKS!!!
I was introduced to the WRAP program in 2007 through my employer. WRAP has become a vital tool in my life, helping me gain control of my life challenges and allowing me to face them head on. Because of the benefits I've found with developing my own personal plan, I am passionate about the WRAP program, and want to share my experiences with others so that they can live their lives to the fullest. I consider this program to be my “playbook,” and would like to help others find the value of WRAP for themselves. I am an Occupational Therapy Assistant working in a mental health setting, with 10 year experience.
PhD in Clinical Psychology
Currently an Evaluator at ACRP in Johnstown, Bedford, Altoona and Somerset Counties.

I Retired as a MSgt E-7 from the United States Air Force on Dec 2012 at Patrick AFB, FL after serving 24 years. My military experience is in the area of Logistics and Education and Training.

I am a physician that has been board certified in Public Health and General Preventive Medicine for 28+ years. I have always had a primary interest in Mental Health-related topics. I learned of Dr. Mary Ellen Copeland’s work in the mid-1900’s and believed her focus on strengths-based self-directed care was the best way to approach mental illness recovery. Her book describing her journey to wellness deeply impacted me and I decided to find her and learn more about her and her work.
I am a licensed social worker and am certified in substance use disorders (CAADC) by the PCB. Please reach out to me if you want to discuss more about WRAP.
