WRAP is a 2.5-day programme that helps you develop your own personally tailored Wellness Action Plan that you can use on a day-to-day basis to manage your wellness and that you can use if you become unwell to restore it.
WRAP can help you to:
• Monitor and manage your own mental wellness
• Identify triggers and signs that your wellness is being challenged
• Develop plans for what you will do to restore/ manage your wellness when this happens

The WRAP programme is being offered at a cost of €75 per participant for the entire 2.5 day programme, which includes 2 facilitators on each day, all programme materials, tea/ coffee and lunch. We will always take individual circumstances into consideration. We receive funding for these programmes through our fantastic funders the National Office for Suicide Prevention, the Iris O’Brien Foundation and our own fundraisers, which allows us to deliver the programme at a significantly reduced cost.
WRAP takes place over 3 consecutive weeks – to complete the programme please ensure you are free for all the dates specified. The first two days run from 9.30am to 4pm. The final day runs from 9.30am to 1pm.
You can find out more about how and why WRAP was developed here.
Please Note: To obtain a certificate of completion full attendance on all three days is required.
