Group Name: Gerstein Crisis Centre – WRAP Through Fitness (Wellness Recovery Action Plan)
Description: WRAP helps you to discover your own simple and safe wellness tools and helps you identify when you need to use them. Anyone can use WRAP to get well, stay well and make their life the way they want it to be.
Within a group setting, individuals explore self-help tools (eg. peer counseling, focusing exercises,
relaxation & stress reduction techniques) and resources for keeping themselves well and for helping
themselves feel better in difficult times.
The group meets for 9 weeks starting October 9th, 2015 and runs every Friday until December 4th, 2015.
WRAP Through Fitness was developed by Gerstein Crisis Centre to incorporate WRAP learning with
physical activity, assisting participants in exploring physical fitness and nutrition as recovery tools. We
have partnered with the Downtown YMCA and access their facilities for this project. While the fitness
component is optional, past participants say it was highly beneficial and added to their overall
experience of WRAP.
