Wellness Recovery Action Planning (WRAP) is a self management system, designed to enable individuals develop a range of effective strategies for self-directed care. The present study evaluated the effectiveness of WRAP on the Depression and Anxiety levels of Adult Mental Health, and Acquired Brain Injury groups. This was measured via The Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS), pre and post WRAP intervention. Waiting list control groups were included. Knowledge of Recovery was investigated using the Mental Health Recovery Measure (MHRM), while knowledge and application of WRAP was measured via the adapted Copeland scale. Results indicated significant, affirmative evidence in respect of each measure, suggesting initial support for the use of WRAP with both populations. Between-group differences were not observed, and WRAP uptake was no superior for either group. Results are discussed within the overall context of twenty-first century recovery, and implications for future practice.
