Cumbernauld-based charity Now You’re Talking is offering people the chance to take a course to help enrich their lives.
NYT have set up the courses thanks to funding from the Self- Management Impact Fund. In November 2013, they secured enough funding to run four ofWRAP courses (Welle (Wellness Recovery Action Planning) courses over the course of a year.
NYT founder David McArthur said: “WRAP is a self-designed plan for staying well and for helping you to feel better when you are not feeling well, to increase personal responsibility, and to improve your quality of life.
“We have been able to offer 15 free places to the public on each WRAP course reaching 60 people by the end and to also train three NYT staff members to become WRAP facilitators.
“This allows us to independently take the WRAP course further out into the community.
“The Wrap Course was developed in America by Mary Ellen Copeland after experiencing the same revolving door scenario with her health issues that many of us have.
“It is a self-management tool and teaches you how to take personal responsibility for your own health and wellbeing.
“We have so far successfully completed three WRAP courses with fanatic outcomes and feedback. We are working towards our final WRAP on August 21 in the Holy Cross Church Hall in Croy.“
