Participants are sought to engage in a study on social recovery. Social recovery is defined as the ability to lead a full, contributing, active life. The purpose of the study is to develop a measure of social recovery. Casadi is looking for people to take the measure and three others that have already been developed to see if her measure performs as expected. 


You must be 18 years or older and in recovery from a mental health challenge. Participation is voluntary. Those who take the survey can choose to enter an optional drawing for one of two $100 Visa gift cards. The computer-based survey will take about 30 minutes to complete. Your name will not be revealed. If interested, please contact your support worker or visit HERE.


Casadi identifies as in recovery from bipolar disorder and substance abuse and is a Portland State University School of Social Work PhD student. Feel free to contact her with any questions or concerns:

Spend five days with Copeland Center staff learning to become a WRAP Facilitator. This course is designed to help you become a powerful change agent as a WRAP Facilitator. You will gain a deeper understanding of the recovery process and learn to: 

  • work with people who have mental health challenges to discover the strengths they have and can use to enhance their recovery; 
  • effectively share the underlying concepts necessary to recovery - hope, personal responsibility, education, self-advocacy, and support;
  • work with individuals and groups to develop a WRAP;
  • teach about wellness tools and strategies; 
  • empower and motivate people to work toward recovery - feeling the way they want to feel, making their lives the way they want them to be, and moving toward meeting their life goals; and 
  • use interaction and presentation styles and strategies that enhance recovery.

Thousands across the U.S. and the world have trained as WRAP Facilitators and those people are changing the mental health system to honor people's recovery journeys. This course models the behavior of a facilitator in a WRAP class and stresses authenticity and unconditional high regard, as well as a strong set of values and ethics to guide your work. 

Fees include lunches, materials, and tuition. 

Applicants are expected to have completed ONE of the following: 

  • The Correspondence Course, 
  • Seminar 1: Introduction to Mental Health Recovery and WRAP workshop (at least 16 hours), or
  • 8-week or longer WRAP group.
