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.
Aloha! I'm in recovery and willing to tell my recovery story to anyone who would like to hear it. WRAP changed my life when I was introduced to it in 2016. This was the first time for me but am growing rapidly in WRAP facilitating and teaching others how to use it. I strive for happiness and wellness in my life and I love to be at the beach as much as I can. I have a positive out look on life and I use my WRAP daily.
I am a LMSW working in the field of mental health and substance dependency. I have a personal WRAP plan, which has evolved greatly over the four year period since I was first introduced to WRAP and I look forward to continue to grow and adapt with my plan! I will be providing WRAP groups at Prairie Ridge Integrated Behavioral Healthcare in Mason City. I also hope to be part of expanding WRAP throughout the state of Iowa.
My name is Crystal Blash and WRAP has given me a new outlook on life. It focuses in on me as an individual, that I have never really thought about before. And now, I am privileged to be a part of this wellness solution on a grander scale. Therefore, I do decree, that my commitment hereby be justified; my thirst for knowledge be quenched; and my hunger for understanding be filled.
Hello! I work as a Certified Peer Support Specialist for the VA; working with veterans as part of the Homeless Outreach and Community Care Management Teams as well as facilitating groups in the Residential Rehabilitation Center. I also have extensive experience as a Leader in Celebrate Recovery and other 12-step recovery programs. I am also a volunteer Chaplain and work in this capacity with our local police department.
I am originally from California but dropped anchor in Arizona which I call home! I served our country in combat operations during the OEF/OIF “War on Terror”. After Military I was then the lead supervising mentor for our Veterans at the Tucson RMVTC or “Veterans court.” I still assist our Veterans in various capacities as a CPSS. I am fortunate to be able to keep helping Veterans as a peer. I am surrounded by knowledgeable people, who are passionate to help those who have served us so selflessly.
I started on my journey to wellness and recovery in 2011, when I was introduced to WRAP. Since attending that WRAP group, I have become a Certified Recovery Support Specialist, obtained my Associate of Arts, with a Certificate in Social and Human Services, and started working for our community mental health organization as a Peer Recovery Specialist. I am very passionate about helping people discover their own wellness and recovery, which is what led me to become a Certified WRAP Facilitator.
Danielle Donaldson is a peer support specialist and group facilitator at Mental Health America of New River Valley. She is an avid proponent of peer support services after experiencing its effects in her own recovery journey and is excited about sharing WRAP in the New River Valley in Virginia.
I was certified in WRAP facilitation in April 2016. I was introduced to WRAP through my employer, the Mental Health Association of Central Florida, in 2014 and it has had a huge positive impact on my life.I facilitate Depression and Bipolar support groups, work with the homeless population in Central Florida, and actively work as a peer. The key concepts of WRAP are weaved into everything I do and have been integral to my success; I am passionate about sharing the tools I've learned and facilitating others in their recovery journey.
Let's share WRAP and get these health and wellness tools into our communities. My interest is to work with families and individuals who have experienced trauma and mental health issues.
My name is Darin Taira I was born in Hawaii on the island of Oahu. I grew up with many challenges of mental illness such as ADHD, Hyperactivity, depression, & Schizoaffective. My life was unmanageable. Because I spent half my life in denial wanting to be normal spending all that time hurting myself and others that were close to me I finally reached a point in my life which was rock bottom. Slowly I started to accept my illness & took steps to try and get better so I could start living a better quality of life.
