A Webinar with Mary Ellen Copeland and Jane Winterling

Webinar Description

In this webinar, Mary Ellen Copeland and Jane Winterling did a series of unrehearsed role plays with the goal of enriching their own WRAP plans using peer support. And you can provide feedback during the question and answer period. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to participate!

Wellness Recovery Action Planning (WRAP™) has become a fundamental wellness tool. The proven success of WRAP in helping people maintain wellness has made WRAP fundamental to peer support training and practice.

Mary Ellen Copeland was involved in the development of WRAP when it was first developed by a group of 30 peers in 1997. Along with others in that group, she was one of the first people to develop and use her own WRAP. She is the author of many WRAP resources. In this webinar she will examine WRAP as it relates to peer support and how this powerful wellness tool can be vital for peer supporters and those they serve.
