My name is Sarah and I love WRAP! I have struggled with mental illness since my early teens. I struggled with major depression, self injury and bipolar 2. I was introduced to WRAP by a friend about 5 years ago. My friend said it was so very helpful for her and I should give it a try. At first, I was skeptical. I felt like a hopeless cause. I have struggled for almost 20 years. I was afraid I would never get better.
But, then I gave it a try. I just love it! I have my WRAP plan on my fridge so I can reference it often. When I am struggling I can just grab my plan and it helps me through the hard times! I am updating my plan often. It has helped me have few hospital visits! It has played a huge part in my recovery!
I also run a self injury support group, and since WRAP worked so well for me, I introduced it to the group members! They also really benefited from WRAP! It is something I now include as part of our group! I highly recommend WRAP! Just give it a try. You won’t be disappointed!
I would love to go through the training to be a WRAP facilitator and help others! Something I hope to look into. I think more awareness needs to be brought to WRAP and its success.
