Most of us could do with investing more in our day to day wellness. Thanks to the generosity of the people of Waterford and recent community fundraising, the Suicide or Survive charity are providing a unique opportunity for sixteen people to avail of fully funded places on an upcoming acclaimed wellness programme. The normal minimum price for these places is €200 per person.
The two and half day Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) is an internationally recognised programme that allows people to explore their own wellness while designing a personal plan of action. It helps people stay well, to take necessary steps when not feeling well, and to improve quality of life in general. It is being offered to the people of Waterford by Suicide or Survive, a national charity that is a pioneer in providing accessible community based programmes.
WRAP is based around concepts of hope, personal responsibility, education, self-advocacy, and support. It is accessible and easy to learn and people don’t need any particular experience or education in order to attend. Attendees will join others in a small group and will explore developing a personal wellness toolbox, creating a daily maintenance plan, how to identify and respond to triggers, identifying when things are breaking down, crisis planning and post crisis planning.
“WRAP is for everyone! Life will send challenges our way and it is invaluable to have practical ways to response to these life challenges and to have a greater understanding of what triggers us in life and how to manage these situations and monitor our mental health. The environment over the two and a half days is really friendly, relaxed and fun. We all owe it to ourselves to have as good a quality of life as possible so I’d encourage anyone interested not to hesitate in seizing this opportunity” said Caroline McGuigan, the founder and CEO of Suicide or Survive.
The WRAP programme takes place in the Park Hotel in Dungarvan, starting Saturday June 10th. It runs from 9.30am to 4.30pm and again on Saturday June 17th from 9.30am to 4.30pm. The last session is a half day on Saturday June 24th from 9.30am until 1pm.
There is a limited number of fully funded places open to participants and the opportunity is available on a first come first serve basis as long as attendees can commit to attending the full programme. The funded places cover all facilitation, venue and material costs, lunch, tea, coffee and snacks.
The amazing opportunity is thanks to the fundraising efforts of Councillor Liam Brazil and those who supported the Easter Sunday 50km charity cycle, true community spirit.
