Regional Consumer Coordination

Regional Consumer Specialists provide leadership and support to assist mental health and substance abuse consumers to understand how they may strive for recovery and wellness within the Behavioral Health System.

Regional Consumer Specialists aid the consumer in understanding and accessing services. Regional Consumer Specialists also act as the consumer’s voice to influence policy-making as the behavioral health system transforms to be more consumer and recovery oriented.

WRAP stands for Wellness Recovery Action Plan™. Regional Consumer specialists facilitate WRAP classes which are self-management and recovery oriented systems that introduce new or underutilized wellness tools and recovery strategies. WRAP is developed & managed by you and designed to:

  • Decrease and prevent intrusive or troubling feelings and behaviors.
  • Increase personal empowerment.
  • Improve quality of life.
  • Assist people in achieving their own life goals and dreams.
  • WRAP is applicable to mental health, substance abuse and gambling.

    Peer Support Groups are consumer groups that focus on common struggles and common solutions in the area of mental health and substance abuse. The meetings are an opportunity for peers to come together and have a safe place to openly talk about life. Regional Consumer Specialists encourage consumers to come together wherever and whenever possible to support each other and develop mutual peer support as a culture within Region II.
