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.
Let's share WRAP and get these health and wellness tools into our communities. My interest is to work with families and individuals who have experienced trauma and mental health issues.
My name is Darin Taira I was born in Hawaii on the island of Oahu. I grew up with many challenges of mental illness such as ADHD, Hyperactivity, depression, & Schizoaffective. My life was unmanageable. Because I spent half my life in denial wanting to be normal spending all that time hurting myself and others that were close to me I finally reached a point in my life which was rock bottom. Slowly I started to accept my illness & took steps to try and get better so I could start living a better quality of life.
I am the Consumer Care Specialist at Region I Behavioral Health Authority. I have done this work for 3 years and believe that my lived experience can help others realize that there is a better life out there for them.
I an a Certified Recovery Peer Specialist for families and have worked as a Family Advocate for the Wraparound program since 2013. As a WRAP facilitator, I hope to empower many in my community to take charge of their own wellness.
Hello, I am DeAnn Braden I live in Northern Kentucky area, and I am a Kentucky Certified Adult Peer Specialist since 2008. I have been working at Mental Health America since 2014 and our local community mental health center Northkey Community Care as a Adult Peer Support Specialist . I was introduced to WRAP once I started working for Mental Health America in 2014. Today in 2017 I can add becoming an International WRAP Facilitator to my list of accomplishments. I know that WRAP works and that has been life changing for me. I am so proud to be part of something so wonderful and I enjoy sharing this exciting way to share recovery with others. I look forward to hearing from you.
I am a person who has lived with the mental health challenges many of us have. When I took WRAP for the first time I realized how much more I needed to recognize my triggers and write them down. With doing this task, I am less triggered because of the awareness. WRAP helps me to remember that I do have control when I am uncomfortable and that gave me HOPE! I am now a facilitator at the VA medical center in Boise and love helping others.
I have 5 years of experience facilitating NAMI Connections support groups. From there I have been on a journey with many growth pains to now realizing that I have abilities and experiences in my own recovery that will bring hope to others living with mental illness. As a CRPS and certified WRAP facilitator I am seeing a bright future of serving my peers and bringing understanding to our providers.
I am a Parenting Peer Support for St. Monica's Behavioral Health for women. I graduated from Southeast Community College with an Applied Science Degree in Human Services. In February 2018 I received my Provisional License Alcohol & Drug Counseling. I am on the Family/Consumer Advisory Board for Region V.
I was introduced to the WRAP program through my employer. WRAP has become a vital tool in my life, helping me gain control of my life challenges and allowing me to face them head on. Because of the benefits I've found with developing my own personal plan, I am passionate about the WRAP program, and want to share my experiences with others so that they can live their lives to the fullest.
I work at Human Resources Consultants, (HRC),as a Peer/Family provider on the Community Care Team in our agency. The agency I work for is contracted with Sacramento County Behavioral Health. I first became involved in the mental health system back in the late 80's, where I attended a drop in center for consumers with mental health issues.
