    Wrap: Wellness Recovery Action Plan.

    It is a personalized plan that puts you in the driver seat. You develop it. It's about peers helping peers...

    The good part of this is there are NO LABELS! You are not a diagnosis, you are a person whose trauma, feelings, etc have created "Normal" responses to help you survive.

    I particularly like the part about creating your own crisis plan, advanced directive that tells doctors, psych, t's, peer's, family, etc what you need and how they can help. You are in charge and they all agree to follow your plan when you feel everything slipping and falling apart.

    Great read Folks!!!
