WRAP will help participants discover individualized wellness tools, develop a list of steps to take each day to understand the cycles of wellness, and identify early warning signs of stress or anxiety.

Each series consists of eight 2-hour classes grounded in mental health recovery concepts. Attendees will learn self-help tools and resources that can help lower stress and feel better during difficult times. Classes are free.

Classes will be held at three locations across Fairfax County.

Learn how to create an individualized “wellness toolbox,” recognize anxiety triggers and early warning signs of trouble, and develop tools on what to do in a crisis. Through a combination of lecture, discussion and group exercises, course participants will learn how to implement the key concepts of recovery (hope, personal responsibility, education, self-advocacy and support) in their day-to-day lives.

Building better health is key to overall psychological well-being. Being mentally healthy is more than being free of depression or anxiety; it also means having a sense of contentment, resilience and an ability to maintain balance between work and play.
