The Advance Directive for Mental Health Treatment is essential for those living with mental illness, if the individual is mentally competent to implement the directive. This form, sometimes referred to as a psychiatric advance directive, or PAD, comes in different varieties (there is no one “set” or required form) and can be customized to the individual’s specific needs and preferences, just like the general advance medical directive. #elvilleeducation #advancedirectives #mentalhealthtreatment
