Wellness Recovery Action Planning (WRAP®) is a person-centred, evidence-based, self-management programme for mental health, widely acclaimed nationally and internationally by health leaders. It is a highly individualised plan that helps you maintain your overall wellness. It combines specific responses and wellness tools that promote empowerment to enable you to live your best life. WRAP® also includes a plan that informs supporters on how to assist you during a crisis.

The Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP®) was developed by people who had experienced various mental health challenges and worked hard to feel better and get on with their lives. In 1997, several dozen individuals who had experienced severe mental health challenges came together in northern Vermont for an eight-day gathering to initiate dialogue on improving their emotional and mental health.
