 Background and Objective:Wellness Recovery Action Plan(WRAP)is a wellness self-management tool which was developed within people with mental health challenges. We conducted a pre-post design survey to test the effectiveness of participation in WRAP on recovery.

 Methods:A total of 27 persons were recruited from WRAP classes held at Recovery College in Tokyo, Japan. A self-administered questionnaire assessed recovery using Japanese versions of the Recovery Assessment Scale (RAS), the Self-Identified Stage of Recovery (SISR) Part A and Part B at the first and last WRAP sessions, and participants' satisfaction using a Client Satisfaction Questionnaire-8 (CSQ-8) at the end of the WRAP session. Paired sample t-tests were used to determine the effectiveness of WRAP participation on recovery. A total of 17 respondents' pre-post data were analyzed.

 Results:Mean scores of RAS and SISR-B showed a significant increase after the WRAP session, and Cohen's effect sizes were 0.26 and 0.26, respectively. There was no significant difference in SISR-A between before and after WRAP participation. Participants' satisfaction was high, and CSQ-8 mean score (SD) was 26.8 (3.5).

 Conclusions:The results suggest that participation in WRAP improves recovery.
