Advance Directive Forms
Mental Health Treatment Form
In October 2003, a law permitting a Declaration for Mental Health Treatment became effective. This mental health declaration allows you to state your own preferences regarding your mental health treatment and to name a person to make mental health care decisions for you when you cannot make these important decisions for yourself.
Those who would benefit from having such a document include people who have been diagnosed with mental illness and people who find themselves or may find themselves in circumstances that would warrant a mental health declaration, including those of advanced age or those who have developed an illness that likely will include a mental component as it progresses.
