How was WRAP Introduced to me? Divorce State of the economy Laid off
How was WRAP Introduced to me? I blamed the system and didn’t know there were actions I could take. Even though I had family members who cared about me I thought I was alone. A family member shared their experience with WRAP and how it showed up in their life. I immediately gravitated towards WRAP.
WRAP is changing my life Through the Wellness Recovery Action Plan I found hope. By talking with my family member I realized there were options and choices out there for me.
