The aim of this research was to assess the relevance and impact of Wellness Recovery Action Planning (WRAP) in group settings, as a tool for self-management and wellness planning by individuals with mental-health problems. This paper reports on the impact on participants who trained as facilitators and delivered WRAP training to others within the organizations studied. Eight WRAP facilitators took part in interviews and focus groups. The WRAP facilitators reported a positive impact on their well-being, from learning more about recovery, developing improved self-awareness, to integrating a WRAP approach into daily life. Delivering WRAP training to groups can make a positive contribution to the well-being of facilitators themselves. Involving people with lived experience in the delivery of WRAP groups in this setting further promoted the recovery journey of facilitators.
