Mental Health Advanced Directive
A Mental Health Advanced Directive is a document that allows the consumer to make their choices known regarding mental health treatment in the event that their mental illness makes them unable to make decisions. In effect, they are making decisions about treatment before the time that they will need it. This allows them to make more informed decisions and to make their wishes clearly known. A law was passed in Pennsylvania, effective January 28, 2005, that makes it possible for the consumer to use a Mental Health Advance Directive.
