For persons interested in developing a legal tool that allows a person with mental illness to state their preferences for treatment prior to a crisis taking place. Once in place the PAD goes into effect when a person is found to lack decision-making capacity. A PAD might outline hospital preferences, who to contact in case of an emergency, and how to best support the person in crisis. This SAMHSA document includes references to additional resources on PADs and crisis planning, a list of terms related to PADs, and some examples of documents which can be used in the development of a PAD. A brief Guide to Psychiatric Advance Directives can be found on pages 41-44.
