WRAP and Life Challenges
WRAP is a flexible, self-designed wellness tool you can use for any life issue. Here are just a few examples:
- Physical or mental health issues
- Life transitions
- Loss or grief
- Mental health issues
- Life challenges
- Suicidal thinking
- Smoking cessation
The goal of WRAP is to build a toolbox of ideas and strategies that work for you and help you deal with challenges. Through the WRAP process, you can explore what you want in your life and decide how to make it happen. WRAP is both a preventive strategy to stay well and a proactive way to address challenges and obstacles that come up. It can be adapted for anything you want to work on. People around the world have used WRAP for things like raising self-esteem and self-confidence, building a strong support system, improving relationships with family members and friends, making new friends or establishing new wellness supports, becoming more assertive, making life changes, boosting a career or skills, and enhancing their lives.
WRAP helps you think about the details of issues you want to address. It also helps you notice small changes or signs that show things may be getting worse for you. WRAP will teach you to use your action plans to help feel better, get well, stay well, move toward goals that are important to you, and increase your overall quality of life.
