Sessions geared at helping anyone supporting those with serious mental illnesses are being offered in Williams Lake Saturday, Jan. 14.
The BC Schizophrenia Society is planning on offering LEAP Training Communication sessions, and the Jan. 14 event will take place from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. at St. Andrew’s United Church in Williams Lake.
LEAP stands for Listen-Empathize-Agree-Partner, and is a trademarked program on how to communicate with people struggling with serious mental illness to support a relationship working towards treatment and recovery.
The evidence-based program aims to help loved ones, support providers, first responders, physicians, nurses and educators in working with those suffering from serious mental illnesses.
Light snacks will be provided, space is limited.
