Developing an Advance Directive / Crisis Plan

June 21, 2012

Join Mary Ellen Copeland as she walks you, step by step through the process of developing an Advance Directive, or Crisis Plan, a plan which you develop for yourself, or with the assistance of others, that instructs others on how to provide you with care and support when you are having a very difficult time.

Most of us like to keep our lives under our own control. However, unanticipated circumstances such as the onset of severe mental health difficulties, a life tragedy, an illness or an accident, can and do occur in everyone’s lives. If you have an AdvanceDirective it will tell others what to do and when to do it, keeping you in control even when it seems like things are out of control.

This webinar will also serve as a guide if you are supporting another person  in developing an Advance Directive or a Crisis Plan.   Click here to view the recording

 

Changing Course: New Directions in Mental Health and Recovery

June 14, 2012

Author and journalist Robert Whitaker joins mental health educator Mary Ellen Copeland for this important webinar.

Respected and rigorous research is showing that mental health challenges are "episodic", which means that they go away over time.  Psychiatric medications can cause long term health problems like diabetes, obesity, and sexual dysfunction.  These problems do not necessarily resolve when the medications are no longer being taken, and the mental health issues may become more extreme than before. 

Robert Whitaker gives an overview of his important work, Anatomy of an Epidemic. As he searched for answers to the troubling question of why the number of people with mental health challenges in the US had tripled over the past two decades, his investigation led to an intensive study of the merits of psychiatric medications and his documentation of the phenomenon that occurs when people who have been taking medications for a long time no longer take them.  He found that they experience mental health challenges that are far worse than anything they experienced before they began taking the medications.

 

Mary Ellen Copeland shares her vision of a mental health system where people who reach out for assistance and support are first encouraged to use their own personal resources to find simple, safe solutions to their mental health challenges.  She will speak specifically to the efficacy of using the evidence-based Wellness recovery Action Plan as the initial and primary support on the journey to recovery.

WRAP for Kids

December 19, 2011

WRAP® for Kids is based on the Wellness Recovery Action Plan, a system developed by Mary Ellen Copeland and a group of people with mental health challenges. It had been suggested by parents and care providers that if kids had a WRAP®, it might set the stage for them to have a happy and healthy life. Mary Ellen Copeland heard their voices and with the help of three ten-years olds created a workbook for kids to develop their own Wellness Recovery Action Plan.

While the plan must be developed by the child who is using it, trusted adults in their life can provide valuable, positive support. The idea and concept of WRAP® for kids is similar to that of adults, yet the language is kid friendly and the crisis/post crisis plan has been omitted.

WRAP for Groups

January 20, 2010

Mary Ellen Copeland will present a free webinar, WRAP for Groups on Wednesday, January 20 from 2-3 PM EST. It wasn't long after the development of WRAP that people began to realize that this simple process that people use to guide their recovery from mental health difficulties could also be used to increase the successfulness and effectiveness of all kinds of groups including WRAP groups, support groups of all kinds including peers support groups, organizations, agencies and even family groups. Developing a WRAP for a group has become so popular that it is a featured activity in WRAP facilitator trainings.

Using WRAP to Develop a Strong System of Support

December 16, 2009

Mary Ellen Copeland of the Copeland Center for Wellness and Recovery will present, Using WRAP to Develop and Keep a Strong Support System. Using the Loneliness Workbook as a guide, she will guide attendees through the process of identifying support related Wellness Tools and then using those tools to build a powerful WRAP that will help them to increase the size and effectiveness of their support system. WRAP group facilitators and health care providers are encouraged to attend as well so that they can share these ideas and strategies with others.

Many, many of the questions in previous webinars are about issues related to support. In Mary Ellen Copeland's earliest studies on how people recover from mental health difficulties, "support" emerged as a key concept for recovery. Those studies, the basis for her well-known recovery work of the last 20 years showed that most people felt that everyone should have a support team of at least 5 people, people who care, people who are willing to listen, people who are willing to help when needed, and people who share the joys and sorrows of our lives, people who like to do fun things. Yet many, probably most people, find Developing and Keeping a Strong Support System to be a challenge in their lives. And yet the ease with which we recover seems to be dependent not only on our own resources but on the closeness and effectiveness of our connection with others.

Mary Ellen also found in her research for the Loneliness Book that people who enjoy time alone and who are not always desperate to be with others are less lonely. She will include in this webinar wellness tools and strategies that help people enjoy and appreciate time alone.
