On Our Own of Montgomery County is pleased to offer WRAP® (Wellness Recovery Action Plan) – an evidence-based program that is proprietary to Mary Ellen Copeland and The Copeland Center. Please call OOOMC at 240-683-5555 and ask to be placed on our applicant list if you are interested in taking WRAP® the next time it is offered.
“The Wellness Recovery Action Plan® or WRAP®, is a self-designed prevention and wellness process that anyone can use to get well, stay well and make their life the way they want it to be. It was developed in 1997 by a group of people who were searching for ways to overcome their own mental health issues and move on to fulfilling their life dreams and goals. It is now used extensively by people in all kinds of circumstances, and by health care and mental health systems all over the world to address all kinds of physical, mental health and life issues.
WRAP® has been studied extensively in rigorous research projects and is listed in the National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices.”
