New WRAP Facilitators Qualify

6th October 2009

Throughout the year we have been working on a project designed to better evidence the impact of Wellness Recovery Action Planning (WRAP) in group settings. Part of this project involved training a group of people to become WRAP Facilitators and we are delighted to announce that all eight recently qualified.

The impact of this training and the subsequent development of WRAP plans by participants will be assessed by researchers with findings due to be published next July.

In addition to this project SRN will be again working with Advanced Level WRAP Facilitator, Rona McBrierty, to train two further sets of facilitators in the next few months significantly increasing the availability of WRAP training across Scotland.
