Episode 26: WRAP Plans for College Students Made Easy, and a Contest!

December 3, 2015
ANNOUNCEMENT:
Announcing, the first ever College Student Success Podcast contest! The prize is a $100 gift card from Amazon, and it will run starting today and ending two weeks from today on 12/17, which will be the last podcast of 2015.
Here’s what to do to win.
Go to iTunes or Stitcher and find the College Student Success podcast and write a review.
You have to view the podcast in the player or in iTunes on your computer in order to write a review.
I don’t care if the review is positive or negative.
After you write the review, email me at collegestudentsuccesspodcast@gmail.com and tell me you wrote the review, and include your itunes/sticher screen name. This way I will be able to contact you to tell you that you won!
On 12/19, I will draw a winner from the emails I receive, and verify that the person wrote a review.  I will email you on 12/19 if you’ve won to make arrangements to send you your gift card.
Tell your friends! I need reviews! There’s probably going to be a good chance that you win if you enter!
STORY TIME:
The tools in my arsenal that have come in handy for me recently (journaling, dog walking, mentorship)
Key Info for this Podcast:
Today we’re going to talk about WRAP plans. WRAP stands for Wellness & Recovery Action Plan, and was created by a woman named Mary Ellen Copeland.
Everything you could want to know about WRAP can be found by going here:
The only thing I couldn’t find was a good template for an actual plan, so I found that here:
I can’t believe I have yet to dedicate an episode to these plans so far. Shame on me! LOL anyway, the Wellness Toolbox (read: Wellness Arsenal) is one part of a larger WRAP plan, so let’s talk about the different parts of the plan now.
  1. Wellness Toolbox/Arsenal
  2. Daily Maintenance Plan
  3. Triggers
  4. Early Warning Signs
  5. When Things are Breaking Down
  6. Crisis Plan
  7. Post-Crisis Plan
I found an app where you can load your WRAP plan called The WRAP App ($4.99)
Wrap-Up:
It took a bit of searching but I found a good WRAP plan outline online that you can download. It’s a PDF, and it’s about 25 pages, just so you’re aware.
Home Exercise:
Print up the WRAP plan over the next week (take advantage of on-campus printing facilities if possible). You don’t have to do anything with it yet, but just have it in paper form and hold on to it to complete during your winter break.
