The WRAP Facilitator Directory offers connection with locally trained and certified WRAP Facilitators who can offer evidence-based practice WRAP workshops in your community. To be listed in this directory, you must have successfully completed the five-day WRAP Facilitator training offered by the Copeland Center or a current Advanced Level WRAP Facilitator of the Copeland Center. Once listed, refresher training requirements must be met to maintain your listing in the directory.
The directory is designed to fill a need for local resource availability for people seeking WRAP groups. The Copeland Center had to make a sizable investment in technology to get the registry up and running. It is primarily designed for Advanced Level WRAP Facilitators to participate by purchasing bulk listings for their trainees. Because it takes investigation into each individual request that does not come directly through an Advanced Level WRAP Facilitator, the Copeland Center has to do detective work to ensure that individuals were properly trained by qualified trainers and this requires a fee. We encourage WRAP Facilitators to request that their trainers contact the Copeland Center to purchase spaces in the registry and therefore eliminate the research required for an individual request and help make it as affordable as possible to both Advanced Level WRAP Facilitators and WRAP Facilitators. If you qualify to be listed in the directory, please contact the organization or Advanced Level WRAP Facilitator who provided your training. Current Advanced Level WRAP® Facilitators who want to list people they have trained and provided refresher course to should contact us for more information.

Hello, my name is Donna Hall. I am originally from Ohio but currently live in Eastern Ky. I have been in recovery from drugs, alcohol and mental illness for over 16 years. I have been a Peer Specialist since May 1st. 2017. I recently became certified in WRAP 2 Co-Facilitation. WRAP is a very important part of my life and I am 100% confident that WRAP will improve many others lives as well. My goal is to get others fired up about their life in hopes of recovery by focusing on our individual WRAP.
I currently reside in Tucson, AZ. I have been married for 22 years. I have two children ages 20 and 21. I pursued my certification for WRAP facilitator in the hopes to educate myself and others on how to become well and stay well. I currently work with veterans who I help navigate through many different challenges they face in life. I enjoy helping others and WRAP has provided me with some additional tools I can use to continue this work.
I am currently the Director of Peer Support Initiatives, and the peer-run Sarah Ann Drop-in Center, with 20 years of assisting people in both victim advocacy and mental health. The ability to use my own personal story and experience has been a large part of how I am able to connect to others. When I was introduced to WRAP, I immediately thought this was a great tool!
I am thrilled to be a part of the Laing House team and having had WRAP Facilitation Training through Self Help Connections. Having completed the Mental Health Recovery & Promotion program at NSCC, and being a huge advocate promoting wellness and recovery for those living with mental illness, Laing House and SHC is a natural fit. I am a very energetic and social individual who loves to network and meet new people in the community.
I am a Certified Peer Support Specialist who draws from a combination of education and personal lived experience to connect with and support peers in my community. I am passionate about self-advocacy and supporting peers in using their voice and their power to advocate for their wants and needs.
