The illness self-management and recovery program is another promising evidence-based practice. Government and consumer advocacy organizations have called for the widespread adoption of this standardized intervention, which involves psychoeducation, cognitive-behavioral approaches to medication adherence, and training in relapse prevention and social and coping skills. Rob Whitley, Ph.D., and colleagues studied its implementation at 12 community mental health centers over two years and found that key facilitators were strong leadership, an organizational culture that embraces innovation, effective training, and committed staff (page 202). In a pilot study of an eight-week illness self-management intervention called Wellness Recovery Action Planning (WRAP), Judith A. Cook, Ph.D., and colleagues found significant improvements in self-reported symptoms, recovery, hopefulness, self-advocacy, and physical health, especially among those who attended six or more sessions (page 246). Alicia Lucksted, Ph.D., and colleagues report results from the first evaluation of Peer-to-Peer, a self-help relapse prevention and wellness program sponsored by the National Alliance on Mental Illness. The authors found that participants' knowledge and management of their illness improved, and they felt less powerless and more confident and connected with others (page 250).
