Upcoming Wellness Recovery Action Plan course

Wednesday, September 13, 2017   Posted in: Training By: Administrator With tags: mental health, mental wellbeing, Training, Courses, planning, addiction

Mental Health Advocacy Peer SupportThe Wellness Recovery Action Planning Course is designed to develop your personal wellness plan in a supportive and confidential peer group.

This very effective course will enable you to write your own Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) to:

  • stay as well as possible;
  • keep track of difficult feelings and behaviours, and develop action plans to help you feel better; and
  • tell others what to do for you when you feel so badly you can’t make decisions, take care of yourself and keep yourself safe.

A WRAP course assists someone to become an effective advocate for themselves and to gather the support they need. This programme is suitable for anyone with experience of a mental illness and who has concluded a treatment or change programme, who feels they have made progress with their recovery and who now wants to form a sustainable and effective wellness plan.

The next course will run on 5 evening sessions starting on Thursday 12th October 2017.

This course costs $10 - to cover the costs of photocopying.

Contact Carl or Hannah at Mental Health Advocacy and Peer Support (MHAPS) to register or for more details (366 5815 or reception[at]
