Best You Wellness Connections


Best You Wellness Connections is a proud and dynamic company providing workshops for people from various backgrounds who are interested in self discovery. Workshops are delivered following the format developed by Mary Ellen Copeland and her peers. It is called Mental Health Recovery and WRAP® which stands for Wellness Recovery Action Plan.

WRAP® is being used internationally to support individuals wanting to reclaim a higher level of wellness, hope, and recovery. It is rooted in the belief that each individual is the expert on themselves and there is no limit to their recovery. [values and ethics].

Each plan developed is by you… for you.

WRAP® was initially developed for people diagnosed with a mental illness. Since its inception in 1997, it is now being offered to those affected by a myriad of symptoms which negatively affect their lives:

  • Teens
  • Families
  • Front line workers
  • War veterans (PTSD)
  • Corrections personnel (PTSD)

Anyone who suffers from:

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • trauma
  • worry
  • grief
  • addictions (including food)
  • diabetes
  • chronic pain

    WRAP® is based on the self-determination of the individual. Best You Wellness Connections facilitators serve to guide individuals through a process where each unique individual is supported and encouraged to identify what gives them HOPE and relief from their troubling stressors!  It also prepares them for times when things may feel out of their control, keeping them in the drivers seat.

This process helps the individual discover who they are on their best days and/ or how they want their life to look and feel?

Each person is guided through the revelation of the process which keeps them on track and illuminates what doesn’t serve them well. They develop a plan based on what they can do to quickly get back on track while using methods that work naturally for them.

Most strategies are simple, safe and free.

WRAP® supports individuals while they dive deep into an exploration of what they do and why they do it. This creates a stronger connection to who they are opening the doors to further possibilities.

Our facilitators share and facilitate via a ‘shoulder to shoulder’ approach to growth and recovery. They believe it works because they are using WRAP® in their own lives to live well and stay well. They are not experts on anyone else’s life or path, except their own.

understand this recovery framework.

We also collaborate with other Advanced Level WRAP® Facilitators in delivering training and refresher courses to groups of people who wish to receive their WRAP® Facilitator certification according to the guidelines provided by the Copeland Center.

This is a great opportunity for organizations that wish to utilize their own people to deliver workshops utilizing champions from within their own team. This creates the opportunity for rapid growth, while increasing a sustainability piece, all while increasing their own organizational capacity for delivering this program.
