I became a certified WRAP facilitator in October of 2015 after being introduced to the program at the 2015 FADAA Conference in Orlando, Florida. I have my Master's degree in Mental Health Counseling from Nova Southeastern University and have worked in primarily trauma-focused environments including suicide prevention. WRAP is a great tool for those maintaining recovery, as well as individuals who do not identify as having a mental illness. It can be particularly beneficial to those of us in the "helping professions" as we tend to neglect our own wellness for the sake of helping others. "You can not pour from an empty cup" - self-care is of the utmost importance!
