SUDBURY, Mass., May 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Rates of loneliness and other mental health issues have rapidly increased during the COVID-19 pandemic isolation. Even as the nation begins to slowly reopen, people are still seeking ways to reduce feelings of fear, isolation and anxiety. Advocates for Human Potential, Inc.'s (AHP) Human Potential Press is offering the public a free digital download of the emotional wellness guide: "Wellness Guide to Overcoming Isolation During COVID-19: Being Connected, Staying Connected, and Choosing Connection."
AHP adapted its evidence-based Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) publication series to help those who are struggling with isolation find ways to connect with themselves and others. It can be shared with friends, groups, and family members and can spark important discussions within families.
"Our mission focuses on helping organizations and individuals reach their full potential," said Neal Shifman, president and CEO of AHP. "It is in the spirit of supporting full health and connection that we offer this new resource to all who might need it during this very difficult time. We encourage people to use it to overcome isolation and strengthen their connections, and we are happy to make it available to all who need it."
The content helps readers discover ways to create positive changes for themselves through self-exploration around maintaining emotional wellness, building connections with others, and whole health.
The "Wellness Guide to Overcoming Isolation During COVID-19" was developed in collaboration with the Copeland Center for Wellness and Recovery. As with all other WRAP materials, this guide is compatible with other health and wellness strategies, supports and treatment programs, including 12-step programs.
In 2016, Human Potential Press (HPP), the publishing arm of Advocates for Human Potential, Inc. (AHP) (www.ahpnet.com), took over the publication, management, and distribution of all materials for WRAP and Recovery Books, which was founded in 1997. AHP and WRAP are committed to helping people everywhere reach their full potential. For 30 years, AHP has worked passionately to improve health systems and business operations through research and evaluation, training and technical assistance and professional consulting to help organizations and individuals reach their full potential.
