Kathleen Wallace

My name is Kathleen Wallace, I am an Advance Level Co-facilitator. I retired from the City and County of San Francisco where I worked for the Department of Public Health serving the homeless and dual-diagnosed population. I started co-facilitating WRAP in 2009, resulting in training over 30 WRAP Seminar I trainings in San Francisco at city clinics and non-profits in the mental health community.  My passion for WRAP has lead me to pursue training opportunities beyond my home town of San Francisco. I recently co-facilitated a WRAP refresher in Washington state for Holding the Hope and numerous WRAP Seminar II trainings in other California cities. I continuously work my own WRAP program causing a ripple effect in my life in the sense that I write creative non-fiction while caring for myself and those close to me. My goal is to share my knowledge and humor to spread the word that “WRAP works!”


Lunch will not be provided.



Please note, this workshop requires an employer note for attendance. Employed certified peer counselors will be given first priority.
