What is WRAP?
WRAP (Wellness Recovery Action Plan) is a group of tools that those of us with behavioral health challenges use to understand and manage our illness.
Upcoming WRAP Events at NAMI Mercer NJ
Fall WRAP Workshop
NAMI Mercer will present their annual Fall WRAP Workshop every Wednesday evening beginning September 28th. This evidence based practice workshop runs for 8 consecutive evenings. The workshop will meet from 6:00-8:30 PM at NAMI Mercer in Lawrenceville, NJ. This WRAP workshop covers all aspects of WRAP in great detail. For example, we spend 2 sessions just developing wellness tools. We spend another 2 sessions working on crisis planning.
This workshop is only for those of us who have been diagnosed with a mental illness. WRAP as evidence based practice is facilitated by peers for the peers in the workshop.
Advance registration is required for this workshop. Seating for this popular workshop is limited. Please contact us at 609-799-8994 x19 to register. There is no charge for this workshop - NAMI Mercer offers this as a public service to the community.
3rd Annual Holiday WRAP
On Saturday, November 19th NAMI Mercer will present our 3rd annual Holiday WRAP. This one day workshop focuses on using WRAP techniques to deal with holiday stress. The workshop is open to anyone (not just peers) wishing to learn a few techniques to help deal with holiday stress.
This workshop is held at NAMI Mercer in Lawrenceville, NJ. The room opens at 8:30 AM and the workshop starts at 9:00 AM. The workshop typically ends at 3:00 PM. Coffee and pastry are served in the morning and a light lunch is provided.
Using my WRAP
In this section we look at ways to use our WRAP more effectively. Please contact us if there is something you would like us to help you with.
Should I Attend a WRAP Workshop Again?
In the end, the answer to this is up to you. We find that many individuals benefit from taking WRAP more than once. Because WRAP is a group of tools and skills it is difficult to master them in an 8 week workshop. By attending the workshop again many individuals learn new skills and tools that they can use to master and manage their illness.
The WRAP workshops at NAMI Mercer welcome individuals who have taken WRAP before. These individuals frequently contribute valuable insight that helps those who are attending their first workshop. WRAP is not therapy - it is a skill. Those who attend multiple workshops continually improve that skill.
Please feel free to register for the fall workshop, even if you have taken WRAP before. We give priority to those who have never attended a WRAP workshop at NAMI Mercer, but we almost always are able to accommodate at least a few of those who have taken WRAP before.
