SUICIDE OR SURVIVE
What is the WRAP Programme?
WRAP (Wellness Recovery Action Plan) is a 2.5-day programme that helps you develop your own personally tailored Wellness Action Plan that you can use on a day-to-day basis to manage your wellness and that you can use if you become unwell to restore it.
Why The WRAP Programme?
WRAP has been proven both locally and internationally to be effective. WRAP takes place over 3 consecutive weeks – to complete the programme please ensure you are free for all the dates specified. The first two days run from 9.30am to 4pm. The final day runs from 9.30am to 1pm.

Attending A Wrap Programme?
The WRAP programme is being offered at a cost of €75 per participant for the entire 2.5 day programme, which includes 2 facilitators on each day, all programme materials, tea/ coffee and lunch. We are happy to discuss a reduction in the fee if cost is a difficulty for you. We receive funding for these programmes through our fantastic funders the National Office for Suicide Prevention, the Iris O’Brien Foundation and our own fundraisers, which allows us to deliver the programme at a significantly reduced cost.
