Abstract

In recent years there has been a consistent drive to incorporate Recovery principles into the Irish Mental Health Services. A group of Irish Mental Health Service Providers came together and delivered a five day Wellness, Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) facilitator’s programme. The programme was developed and delivered by key stakeholders including people with self experience of mental health problem. This paper presents the qualitative findings from an evaluation of these facilitator’s
programmes. Three focus groups were held with twenty two people, the majority of who described themselves as mental health professionals and/or people with self experience of mental health problems. Data was analysed using a thematic approach
and yielded four themes. Although the participants were positive about the programme and felt that their knowledge of recovery and WRAP had improved, they felt that they still lacked confidence in terms of the presentation skills required for
facilitating Recovery and WRAP programmes. The findings suggest that Mental Health Service providers who wish to develop service users and clinicians as WRAP facilitators need to put more emphasis on the provision of facilitation and presentation skills in the programmes they develop.
