WRAP is a self-designed prevention and wellness process that anyone can use to get well, stay well and make their life the way they want it to be. It was developed in 1997 by a group of people who were searching for ways to overcome their own mental health issues and move on to fulfilling their life dreams and goals. It is now used extensively by people in all kinds of circumstances, and by health care and mental health systems all over the world to address all kinds of physical, mental health and life issues.
WRAP has been studied extensively in rigorous research projects and is listed in the National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices
WHAM is a training program and peer support group model developed by CIHS to encourage increased resiliency, wellness, and self-management of health and behavioral health among people with mental illnesses and substance use disorders. A powerful program intended to strengthen the peer workforce’s role in healthcare delivery, WHAM provides peer support professionals and volunteers a format for peer support meetings in which consumers engage in 8-week WHAM groups to support one another as they work toward, achieve, and maintain whole health goals. The skills learned in WHAM help participants engage in self-management and crystallize goals to achieve better whole health and wellness
SOAR is a national program designed to increase access to the disability income benefit programs administered by the Social Security Administration (SSA) for eligible adults who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness and have a mental illness, medical impairment, and/or a co-occurring substance use disorder. The goals of the SOAR program speak directly to one of SAMHSA’s Strategic Initiatives- Recovery Supports. SOAR seeks to end homelessness through increased access to SSI/SSDI income supports, directly addressing SAMHSA’s assertion: “To recover, people need a safe stable place to live.” This is essential, and for many persons in recovery accessing benefits is a first step. But SOAR extends beyond and also encourages employment as a means to increase individual income and promote recovery in line with the SAMHSA assertion that: “to recover, people need meaningful work and the ability to enhance their skills through education.”
