Hi there just wanted to say that I have had mental health problems all my life but really bad for over 10 years, married to someone who also has severe mental health problems and together we care for our 3 children. Its basically a happy but fruitloop home and we muddle through the only way we know how!

Would like to make friends on here, especially local ones, who are able to focus on wellness rather than illness as there has been too much of that around for both of us for many years. If anyone uses the WRAP Wellness Recovery Action Plan and use it successfully I would benefit from some help and support in putting it into action, learnt about it but still writing my wrap plan and have yet to try to live by it. Tried to put it in place once and it went a bit pearshaped but learnt from it.

Keep smiling...

Hi there and welcome. I certainly seem to be coming across new things on this site. First ACT and now WRAP, two things that until today I had never heard about. I only joined the forum myself two days ago, but welcome and look forward to reading some of your thoughts on the boards...

:welcome:

Welcome messedupmiss :welcome:

We really like the concept of meeting people locally through this forum. We are planning to take the forum to a more local level as we get more members.

If anyone uses the WRAP Wellness Recovery Action Plan and use it successfully I would benefit from some help and support in putting it into action, learnt about it but still writing my wrap plan and have yet to try to live by it.

For those who don't know about WRAP the details can be found at http://www.mentalhealthrecovery.com/aboutwrap.php It is new to me as well. I'd be interested to hear of anyone's experiences with it.
