WRAP For Carers
Mary Ellen Copeland developed WRAP at a workshop in Vermont in 1997. WRAP focuses on peoples strengths and is developed by the person. WRAP is “adaptable to any situation” and is not just for people with severe mental illness. An Edinburgh Carers Council study funded by NHS Lothian found “a significant improvement in mental wellbeing” of carers who had completed WRAP. It was reported that they defined their recovery in terms of recuperation, revival and renewal. By completing WRAP Carers will develop a personal framework to explore what they can do to maintain positive wellbeing. Compass Recovery College offers 5 sessions of WRAP for Carers followed by monthly “catch up” sessions.
