Wellness Service

Our Wellness Service works with children and families using WRAP (Wellness Action Recovery Planning) to build emotional resilience and develop new coping skills.

Our Wellness Service uses 1-1 Wellness Recovery Action plans (WRAP) to support new and expectant mums, children and families who are experiencing emotional difficulties in harnessing their own strengths and building resilience.

The Wellness Service wins the Lottery!


The Wellness Service is delighted to announce that we have secured significant funding from the National Lottery under the People and Communities Fund. The total grant of £499,958 over three years will enable us to enhance our services and reach more individuals and families in the Fermanagh and Omagh district council areas.

Based in Fermanagh House, the Wellness Service is dedicated to addressing emotional health and well-being challenges. Our programs are designed to equip children and families with tools for emotional resilience and effective communication. We offer a range of support for expectant mothers, children aged 5-12 years old, and workshops for parents, aimed at fostering strong, supportive family environments.


Expanding Holistic Well-being Services


In addition to our current offerings, the Wellness Service is expanding its holistic approach to well-being. We consider health's physical, emotional, and social aspects, incorporating various interventions such as counselling, play therapy, support groups, and workshops. This comprehensive approach ensures that we address the diverse needs of our community members.

"We are all thrilled to have received this generous funding from the National Lottery it felt like winning the lottery the day Caroline called me," said Rosie, the Wellness Team. "This support will enable us to grow and enhance our services over the next three years. We are deeply grateful to everyone involved in Mindwise for their unwavering support in making this happen. We look forward to seeing how our service will evolve and positively impact the community."

To celebrate this exciting milestone, we will host a launch event on Wednesday 24th of July from 10 am to 1.00 pm. This event will mark the beginning of our three-year journey, and we invite and welcome all those interested in attending. We will be reaching out to community members in the coming weeks to join us in celebration.

Our Wellness Services

Family Wellness Service

The project aims to enhance the emotional health and wellbeing of children aged 5 - 12 who are at risk of developing significant mental health difficulties if early intervention measures are not identified and addressed, with a view to reducing their need for more intensive or long-term support from statutory/other services.

The project adopts a holistic person and family centred approach which helps families to better support their children, understand and manage their circumstances, to be part of the community they live in and to experience less stigma and discrimination.

What we do

We offer one-to-one support for children and their parents and/or carers using a WRAP approach.

In the short video above, Wellness Service client Lea explains the impact of WRAP on her mental health

Wellness: A sense of feeling good about yourself and not feeling sad or angry more than normal. People with a sense of wellness live and enjoy life.

Recovery: This is a journey. It can be anything but it generally involves feeling better about yourself, an illness or a problem.

Action: This is what you can do. The things that you put in place or change in your life to help the recovery journey.

Plan: The idea of a plan here is that you will have an idea of what it looks like when you are well and what it looks like when you aren’t well. You can write it down, type it out or be as creative as you want when creating your plan.

WRAP was developed by Mary Ellen Copeland and other people who had been feeling bad for years and developed a plan to feel better.

It can be used by anyone who wants to create positive change in the way they feel, increase their enjoyment of life or increase wellness. This system is something which is individual to each person; no one can create it for you. It will help you to keep track of some of the difficult feelings you can have and develop actions which can make you feel better. The plan is developed to try and help you stay as well as possible. Progress is measured by you not by someone else. Wrap will help you think through a process, recognising subtle signs of changes which may indicate things are worsening for you. It sets out actions that you create to make yourself feel better, get well and stay well

WRAP is not a replacement for traditional medical treatment and other therapies, it is complementary to them. It may not prevent or completely alleviate difficulties but it is hoped that with using it, we can reduce the difficult times and be able to deal with them without them escalating therefore preventing crisis.

WRAP can be used for any aspect of life. You should always develop a WRAP when you feel well. You can be as creative as you want with WRAP - it’s up to you how it’s done.

What we do 

We recognise both the joys and challenges that becoming a parent brings. MindWise offers support for emotional health and well-being on a 1:1 basis through the Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) programme. The aim is to help expectant/new mums and/or their partners to manage difficult feelings and develop action plans to help them feel better on their road to recovery. 

The programme is delivered in the mothers own home or in a community venue local to your home. Alternatively, if it suits you better, the programme can be provided online. We aim to reduce any barriers on being able to access the support.
