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:
- Monday evenings November 7th-21st, 7:00PM to 9:00PM (Held via Zoom)
- Saturday November 26th, 9:00AM to 3:30PM (Held at Prosper Place)
