Peer Support & Activities

united way of tarrant county

MHA offers a variety of supportive and educational opportunities for adults with mental health conditions. The Peer Support programs are led by mental health recovery educators and peers in mental health recovery.

Wellness Recovery Action Planning (WRAP)
This class is a highly structured program facilitated by Certified WRAP Facilitators and covers three primary areas: building a support system; wellness tools such as diet, creative expression, sleep, and light; recognizing triggers and regaining control over challenging situations, and creating  individual action plans . Five key recovery concepts discussed are: hope, personal responsibility, education, self-advocacy, and support. With strength and courage, recovery is possible.   WRAP is an evidence-based program.

Peer Support Activities
Peer activities provide opportunities for peers to interact with each other in a fun, community-based setting that allows for social support and friendships to flourish. Our Peer Support Program continues to grow at a tremendous rate. We welcome all clients of the mental health system to participate and look forward to the future of these programs.
