Building a parental mental health support team: Ulysses Agreement

British Columbia Schizophrenia Society, Canada

The Ulysses Agreement is designed so that parents with the mental health concern can build a support team (professional & non-professional) that will meet the family’s needs during times of struggle so that the safety needs of children are met.

The wellness part of the plan uses components of the Wellness Recovery Plan (WRAP) as designed by Mary Ellen Copeland.  A wellness plan outlines what a person does everyday to be the healthiest they can be.

Ulysses Agreements can be designed for children and adult needs as well.  This particular designed meets parent’s needs. Note, the document is meant to be used as a guide. A good Ulysses Agreement is always unique to the person developing it. Feel free to adapt and change it as you need.
