LEAP Courses

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.

The next courses will be held:

  • Saturday September 24th, 9:00AM to 3:30PM (in-person in Edmonton)
  • Monday evenings November 7th-21st, 7:00PM to 9:00PM (Held via Zoom)
  • Saturday November 26th, 9:00AM to 3:30PM (in-person in Edmonton)

Training can also be arranged for health care professionals, law enforcement, or any other group that works with persons who have a serious mental illness.
