The Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP®) is a wellness and recovery approach that helps people to: 1) decrease and prevent intrusive or troubling feelings and behaviours 2) increase personal empowerment; 3) improve quality of life; and 4) achieve their own life goals and dreams. WRAP is a personalized wellness and recovery system born out of and rooted in the principle of self-determination. WRAP® participants create a personalized recovery system of wellness tools and action plans to achieve a self-directed wellness vision despite life’s daily challenges. Working with a WRAP® can help individuals to monitor uncomfortable and distressing feelings and behaviours and, through planned responses, reduce, modify, or eliminate those feelings. A WRAP® also includes plans for responses from others when an individual cannot make decisions, take care of him/herself, and/or keep him/herself safe.
