Publisher's Summary

Dr. Amador's research on poor insight was inspired by his attempts to help his brother Henry, who developed schizophrenia, accept treatment. Like tens of millions of others diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, Henry did not believe he was ill. In this latest edition, six new chapters have been added, new research on anosognosia (lack of insight) is presented and new advice, relying on lessons learned from thousands of LEAP seminar participants, is given to help listeners quickly and effectively use Dr. Amador's method for helping someone accept treatment. I Am Not Sick, I Don't Need Help! is not just a reference for mental health practitioners or law enforcement professionals. It is a must-have guide for family members whose loved ones are battling mental illness. Listen and learn as have hundreds of thousands of others...to LEAP - listen, empathize, agree, and partner - and help your patients and loved ones accept the treatment they need.

    "Already great book made better now with audio"

    I'm not sick I don't need help is my number 1 suggest for those caring for someone with mental illness. Now with audio it will reach more who will benifit. Using LEAP and Dr Amador's other communication is highly effective. However it takes practice. I've found now being able to listen and review LEAP while driving is very benificial in mastering these techniques . If you're someone like me who is a better book listener than reader you now have the best book on the subject available. T. Michael

    "INVALUABLE"

    As an aunty living with and looking after a 22-year old niece with bipolar disorder, I find this book to be a MUST READ/LISTEN for anyone who has a family member or friend wth schizophrenia or bipolar disorder.

    All of the things you think you know about communicating DO NOT APPLY and you will frustrate yourself (and damage your relationship with your loved one) if you don't take the time to arm yourself with the proper tools. This book offers those very tools. I am so excited to begin having these conversations with my niece. That's something I haven't quite felt since she got sick and we went down this rabbit hole...
