Wellness Recovery Action Plan®, or WRAP®, is an evidence-based system that is used world-wide by people who are dealing with mental health and other health challenges, to attain their highest possible level of wellness. WRAP® involves listing your personal resources, your Wellness Tools, and then using those resources to develop Action Plans to use in specific situations which are determined by you. WRAP® has its roots in the mental health peer movement and is adaptable to any situation. WRAP® also includes a Crisis Plan or Advance Directive. WRAP® is universal ― it is for anyone, any time, and for any of life’s challenges. Your WRAP® is written by and for you, putting you in the “driver’s seat” of your wellness journey.
WRAP® 1 teaches participants to develop their own plan for personal use, and is a pre-requisite for those interested in WRAP® Facilitator Training. To learn more about the WRAP® model, click here.

All too often, individuals living with mental health concerns are confronted with a treatment system overwhelming in size and power. Understanding their role and how to navigate that system can be a daunting task. ‘Finding Your Voice’ looks to increase individuals’ understanding of themselves and their interactions with the mental health system to facilitate better outcomes. Attendees will learn how to become experts on themselves, set realistic expectations for treatment, and work collaboratively with others on their recovery. There will also be an opportunity to understand how traditional and innovative mental health services in Tompkins County have brought the consumer’s voice back into focus.
The conference is FREE, open to the public, and features a keynote by Dr. Ednita Wright, Ph.D., LCSW, CASAC, multiple concurrent sessions, a book talk, and more! Everyone is welcome!
Dr. Wright is a Professor in the Human Services/Teacher Education Department at Onondaga Community College. She is also the Program Coordinator of the Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counseling Program. Dr. Wright has worked at a variety of institutions, within the Central New York area, both private and public. She has written on topics of addiction, HIV/AIDS and cultural diversity. Dr. Wright is currently interested in the subtleties within policies and cultural norms that perpetuate racism and other bias in academic and other institutional environments. She has consulted for over twenty years with community agencies and academic institutions regarding issues of diversity with the primary objective of moving away from tolerance to authentic inclusion. She has received numerous awards for her commitment to the community and to the art of teaching.
