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.


We will all experience some sort of life and/or health difficulties such as mental health challenges, addictions, loss, diabetes or ageing…  Yet we can get well, stay well and go on to fulfil our life dreams and goals.

Personal responsibility

It’s up to you to act and do what needs to be done to keep yourself well.  It’s also up to you to ask others for help if you want or need it.


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


Effectively reaching out to others and expressing your needs helps you get what you need, want and deserve to support your wellness and recovery.


Although 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.
