Declaration for Mental Health Treatment

A “Declaration for Mental Health Treatment” allows people receiving services to plan ahead; it may also assist service providers in giving appropriate treatment.  The “Declaration for Mental Health Treatment” form describes what a service participant wants to occur when receiving mental health treatment. It describes mental health services that a service participant might consider, the conditions under which a declaration may be acted upon, and directions on how a service participant can revoke/cancel a declaration.

An individual may make a Declaration for Mental Health Treatment if she/he is 16 years old or an emancipated minor and has the capacity to make informed mental health treatment decisions.
