Psychiatric Advance Directives (MHA)

Mental Health America (MHA) supports and promotes the use of psychiatric advance directives as a tool for the expression of an individual's free will and self-determination. Psychiatric advance directives offer several key benefits:
  • Promote individual autonomy and empowerment in the recovery from mental illness
  • Enhance communication between individuals and their families, friends, healthcare providers, and other professionals
  • Protect individuals from being subjected to ineffective, unwanted, or possibly harmful treatments or actions
  • Help in preventing crises and the resulting use of involuntary treatment or safety interventions such as restraint or seclusion
