Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP)

WRAP Book cover

‘This small and simple book is a sensible, tried and tested tool that offers anyone wanting to work on their recovery a clear framework for self management. It offers an invitation to engage with reflection and experimentation to discover “what in your experience works for you” and over time it can progressively become a support and a reminder of what a person values and needs to do to stay well. WRAP is an invaluable aid that supports learning from experience which we are putting into practice across our mental health and wellbeing services. I cannot recommend it too highly.’
Dr Glenn Roberts FRCPsych MD
Consultant in Psychiatric Rehabilitation and Recovery, Exeter
Lead on Recovery for Royal College of Psychiatrists

‘WRAP puts practical teeth into the rhetoric of strengths-based and user-centred services.’
Professor KWM Bill Fulford
Editor, Oxford Textbook of Philosophy and Psychiatry

Price: £12.99 (free postage, packing and handling)

Synopsis

Learning self-help skills for dealing with physical and emotional symptoms can be simple . . . but it is a much greater challenge using self-help methods during the most difficult times – when they can help the most – and incorporating them into daily life.

This book presents a system developed and used successfully by people with a variety of distressing physical, emotional and other mental health symptoms and experiences. It has helped them use self-help skills more easily to monitor their symptoms, decrease the severity and frequency of symptoms, and improve the quality of their lives.

This book will help you:

  1. Develop your own list of activities for your everyday well-being
  2. Track triggering events and early warning signs
  3. Prepare your personal responses if symptoms/distressing experiences increase
  4. Create a plan for your supporters to care for you if necessary

Included in this very accessible guide is information on developing a support system, using peer counselling, focusing, creative activities, journaling, music, diet, exercise, light, managing distressing voices, relaxation exercises, and getting a good night's sleep.

Using the Wellness Recovery Action Plan, self-management of physical and emotional symptoms becomes possible and practical.
