is excited to launch My Plan, My Life: My Psychiatric Advance Directive — a new online resource to inform consumers with mental illness, their families and health care professionals about the importance of psychiatric advance directives. This program is sponsored by Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation.
Similar to a medical advance directive or a health care power of attorney, a psychiatric advance directive is a legal document completed in a time of wellness that provides instructions regarding treatment or services one wishes to have or not have during a mental health crisis, and may help influence his or her care.
