519 individuals with a serious mental illness were assigned to services as usual or Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) and assessed at two- and eight-month follow-ups. WRAP participants reported significantly greater reduction in Brief Symptom Inventory depression and anxiety subscales, and significantly greater improvement in total Recovery Assessment Scale scores, as well as the subscales measuring personal confidence and goal orientation. Results will appear in Psychiatric Services.
