Mary Ellen Copeland, PhD, presents a wealth of information on wellness and recovery through snippets of her everyday life in this two-part DVD. Learn about diet as Mary Ellen shops with her daughter and prepares a meal with her mother; exercise, as she whirs away on her bike; light, as she shows us her workspace and her light box; and the importance of support groups as she facilitates one. Mary Ellen, along with her colleagues, discusses medication, stress, and the importance of self-advocacy.

In Part 1 of Living WRAP, Mary Ellen Copeland takes us step by step through the key concepts of recovery and WRAP. As we watch her facilitate an actual WRAP group, we are also treated to a highly personal glimpse into her private life as she shares and shows us some of her diverse Wellness Tools.

Part 2 of Living WRAP contains historic footage from Coping with Depression, the original video that was produced and directed by William Hood in 1991, about six years before WRAP was born. Here, a younger Mary Ellen Copeland tells the story of her past through family photos and demonstrates her journey from a life of mental health challenges to a life of wellness and recovery. In this compelling and intimate video, you’ll see the progression of the work that led to WRAP as we know it today.
