I AM NOT SICK I Don't Need Help! 10th Anniversary edition
How to Help Someone With Mental Illness Accept Treatment
“This book ﬁlls a tremendous void…” wrote E. Fuller Torrey, M.D., about the ﬁrst edition of I AM NOT SICK, I Don’t Need Help! Twenty years later, it still does.
Dr. Amador’s research on poor insight was inspired by his success helping his brother Henry, who developed schizophrenia, accept treatment. Like tens of millions of others diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar and substance abuse disorders, Henry did not believe he was ill.
I AM NOT SICK, I Don’t Need Help! is not just a reference for mental health and criminal justice professionals. It is a must-read, step-by-step guide for family members whose loved ones have been devastated by mental illness.
Learn as have millions of others worldwide…to LEAP®— Listen, Empathize, Agree, and Partner—to help your patients, loved ones, and others accept treatment.
