    Wellness Recovery Course using WRAP - Wellness Rec. ActionThe wellness course runs 8-12 weeks meeting weekly for two hours. WRAP is a program in which participants identify internal and external resources for facilitating recovery, and then use these tools to create their own, individualized plan for successful living. The creation of a WRAP plan which happens over the course length generally begins with the development of a personal Wellness Toolbox, consisting of simple, safe, and free or low-cost self-management strategies such as a healthy diet, exercise, sleep patterns and pursuit of adult life roles. The person then uses this Toolbox to create an indivdualized plan for using each strategy to obtain and maintain their recovery. The plan includes identification of "early warning signs" of symptom exacerbation or crisis and how the Toolbox can help people to manage to feel better. WRAP also encourages development of a crisis plan, which states how the person would like to be treated in times of crisis (similar to an advance directive for inpatient psychiatric care), as well as a post-crisis plan for back on the road to recovery.CumberlandNAMI Pennsylvania Cumberland/Perry CountiesNAMI Pennsylvania Cumberland/Perry Counties
