Course Descriptions

LEAP® Course

The LEAP® Course helps persons with mental illness that are either non-adherent, or only partially adherent, become fully engaged in treatment and services (medication, psychotherapy, psychosocial programs, peer-support, supervised housing, etc.) and to cooperate with persons who are trying to help them (with accepting treatment and services and/or in law enforcement/corrections settings, with de-escalation and following requests/directions).

The LEAP® Course is completed over the course of one day and involves didactic, experiential, and role-play workshops. The workshops are unique in that the same evidence-based practices are taught to:

• MENTAL HEALTH PROVIDERS (psychiatrists, social workers, nurses, psychologists, case managers, crisis workers, consumer peer counselors, occupational therapists, etc.)

• FAMILY CAREGIVERS AND FRIENDS (of persons with mental illness)


• And others involved in the care and safety of people suffering from severe mental illness.
