Struggling to help someone with serious mental illness accept treatment?
Learn the #1 reason people refuse help – “anosognosia” – and how to create trusting relationships that lead to treatment and recovery!
This 3-hour workshop will be facilitated by Bob Krulish.
During Bob Krulish’s tenure at Nationwide Insurance and Safeco, he saw a doctor for stress related symptoms and was incorrectly diagnosed with depression. He was placed on a medication that would ultimately cause him to ruin his own life. Once Bob received the proper diagnosis of Bipolar 1 Disorder, he was able to slowly put his life back together and soon found the strength to share his struggles with others. Now, he coaches private clients and their families to better manage the disorder. Through his teaching, he seeks to eliminate the suffering caused by bipolar disorder.
Bob holds a national certification from the Copeland Center to teach their Wellness Recovery Action Plan Course anywhere in the United States. He teaches the In Our Own Voice Program for Washington State through the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) and has served on the board of directors for NAMI Eastside. Additionally, Bob is certified through Dr. Xavier Amador’s LEAP Institute to teach their programs nationally.
He is the author of When Scream Become Whispers and is currently developing a robust online program including webinars, written, and audio content as a pioneer in the field of mental illness. Through this work, he continues to build his platform and speak at national conferences about hope and recovery. Bob currently lives just outside of Seattle, WA.
