The Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP®) is a self-management tool for health and wellbeing. It can be used by individuals to address physical, mental health and life issues. 

It was developed in 1997 by people in recovery from mental illness and focuses on self-help, recovery, and long-term stability . It is now used extensively by people in different circumstances, and by health care and mental health systems all over the world to address all kinds of physical, mental health and life issues.

WRAP has been studied extensively in rigorous research projects and is listed in the US National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices . It is also recognised as an evidence-based practice by the US Federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration (SAMHSA) .

In 2018, PAUL Partnership, through its Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme (SICAP), delivered a project to train a series of community facilitators to deliver the WRAP programme in their own communities.
