Board Member

Mary Ellen Copeland is founder of the Copeland Center for Wellness and Recovery. She has presented numerous keynote addresses, trainings and workshops all over the world and is well known in the world wide mental health recovery movement. She has received many awards for her work including In 2009 the Voices Award for Life Time Achievement and in 2006 the John Beard Award.   She is the author  of many self help resources including  WRAP Plus, WRAP: Wellness Recovery Action Plan, The Depression Workbook: A Guide to Living with Depression and Manic Depression, WRAP and Peer Support (with Shery Mead) and the popular facilitator training curriculum, Mental Health Recovery and WRAP. These resources are based on her on-going study of the day-to-day and life recovery strategies and skills of people who experience mental health difficulties, and how these people have gotten well, stayed well and worked toward achieving their own goals and dreams.  She undertook these studies out of her own frustration with dealing with these issues in her own life.  She has achieved long-term wellness by using many of the skills and strategies she learned from these studies.  She worked with Shery Mead, to develop Community Links: Pathways to Reconnection and Recovery, a program  using  education and peer support approaches for people who have repeated involuntary commitments.
