Recovery Concepts

WRAP is a structured system for monitoring wellbeing and is underpinned by five key recovery concepts: hope, personal responsibility, education, self advocacy and support.

During a WRAP course the recovery concepts are discussed and explored in the group and used by individuals as a starting point for creating their own WRAP.

Hope – People who experience difficulties in life or mental health get well, stay well and go on to meet their life dreams and goals.

Personal responsibility – It’s up to you, with the assistance of others, to take action and do what needs to be done to keep yourself well.

Education – Learning all you can about what you are experiencing so you can make good decisions about all aspects of your life.

Self-advocacy – Effectively reaching out to others so that you can get what it is that you need, want and deserve to support your wellness and recovery.

Support – While working toward your wellness is up to you, receiving support from others, and giving support to others will help you feel better and enhance the quality of your life.
