Programs for Self-Management and Recovery: Wellness Recovery Action Plans

WRAP (Wellness Recovery Action Plan) is a personal and professional response plan designed in advance to respond to symptoms that would prevent a person from feeling well on any given day. It is a recovery tool box designed by persons in recovery, so they can live, and pursue happiness and equal housing and employment.

WRAPs must not be confused with Advance Directives. While both documents help express an individual’s treatment preference, only the Advance Directive is a legally enforceable vehicle.
