Participants discuss with Mary Ellen how to create a personal “Toolbox” for their own use in times of stress or when they are feeling badly. The workshop is organized into various topics, including reaching out for support, peer counseling, focusing, relaxation, stress reduction, and journaling. (28 minutes)

Session 3—Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) provides a simple system for monitoring and managing mental health difficulties.
