Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP)

Discover your own simple, safe wellness tools; Develop a list of things to do every day to stay as well as possible; Identify upsetting events, early warning signs and signs that things have gotten much worse; using wellness tools, develop action plans for responding at these times; Create a crisis plan; and Create a post-crisis plan

The Wellness Recovery Action Plan® or WRAP®, is a self-designed prevention and wellness process that anyone can use to get well, stay well and make their life the way they want it to be. It was developed in 1997 by a group of people who were searching for ways to overcome their own mental health issues and move on to fulfilling their life dreams and goals. It is now used extensively by people in all kinds of circumstances, and by health care and mental health systems all over the world to address all kinds of physical, mental health and life issues.
