The Recovery Programme is directed at mental health service users who are discharged or who may want to avoid coming into hospital.
The main emphasis of the Recovery Programme is the creation of the person's own WRAP® (Wellness Recovery Action Plan). It aims to educate each person, allowing them to self-monitor their mental health using their WRAP® Plan and to address factors that may impede or support their recovery.
While WRAP® is delivered as one segment, additional group work sessions on recovery topics which support WRAP® are also included, such as Motivation to Change, Self and Relationships, Self esteem, Building Social Supports and Enhancing General Health.
The WRAP® segment of the programme is facilitated by accredited advanced level WRAP® facilitators who received their training from the Copeland Centre.
This programme is available for day patients.
