An Evidence Based Practice

“Mental Health Recovery including Wellness Recovery Action Planning” is the result of Mary Ellen Copeland’s search for ways she could live a life filled with hope and meaning and not be known only by her mental health diagnosis. She reached out to others who had or still lived with mental health challenges.  WRAP came out of her efforts to document the ideas and techniques they used to move into lives filled with hopes, joys and purpose.

The Copeland Center for Wellness and Recovery

Founded in 2003 to promote mental health recovery through education, training, and research based on WRAP®. The Copeland Center was named in honor of and dedicated to the memory of Mary Ellen’s mother – Kathryn Strouse Copeland (1912-1994) – whose courageous struggle to face and overcome mental health challenges was a lifelong inspiration to her daughter.

WRAP at The Transformation Center

“MassWRAP” was founded in 2004 by Marina Coolness, Doug Cooper and Kerrie Fallon.  Marina and colleagues at The Transformation Center have worked with RLCs across Massachusetts to train WRAP Facilitators, many of whom offer WRAP classes.
