LEAP (Listen-Empathize-Agree-Partner)

Struggling to help someone with SERIOUS MENTAL ILLNESS accept treatment?

Do you have a family member with a serious mental illness and isn’t willing to accept treatment? If so, then LEAP can help.

LEAP® (Listen-Empathize-Agree-Partner) courses are for family members or caregivers of someone experiencing psychosis (hallucinations and/or delusions) and isn’t aware of having a mental illness. Developed by Dr. Xavier Amador, author of I am not Sick, I don’t Need Help, LEAP can help improve or repair your relationship and get your loved one to accept treatment.

These courses are for family members; if you are a health care provider or otherwise seeking information to help in your work, another course can be arranged that will suit your needs. Please contact the trainer if this applies to you. Right now we are offering these courses to Alberta residents only at no cost. Each in-person course will be hosted at Prosper Place, 10455 172 Street NW, Edmonton AB T5S 1K9.
