Welcome to the Copeland Center Summit: WRAP, Peer Support, and Community!

Jim Klasen

Jim Klasen is a Certified Peer Specialist Trainer, Advanced Level WRAP Facilitator, and Technical Assistance provider for the Institute for Recovery and Community Integration.  With over 35 years of experience in human services, with a special concern for workforce issues, Jim has worked with youth, welfare recipients, persons returning home from prison, and persons impacted by trauma, mental health, and substance related challenges. Jim brings lived experience and shares his recovery journey openly as evidence that recovery and wellness are both possible and probable.  His journey has led naturally to his “encore career” at the Institute as Delaware County’s Certified Peer Specialist Trainer and Technical Assistance provider.  Jim is a true believer in the Wellness Recovery Action Plan.  WRAP provides a foundation to help others attain their highest possible level of wellness.  Music is his creative expression and he often ends the training day with a song or two.
