LEAP shares the Mandt philosophy of gradual intervention to assist people when dealing with a stressful situation. Mandt is built on approaching a situation with dignity and respect. Each staff member is trained in this approach and its adoption is critical for all employees.

The leadership of LEAP encourages and mandates ongoing training and education for staff members in order for them remain informed.
