    "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! Ten years later, it still does. Dr. Amador"s research on poor insight was inspired by his attempts to help his brother Henry, who developed schizophrenia, accept treatment.

In this latest edition, 6 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 readers 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-read guide for family members whose loved ones are battling mental illness. Read 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.
