Treatment Declaration

Please visit our “Legislative Docs” section of the website to see information provided on a treatment declaration.  This document is formally known as a Mental Health Treatment Preference Declaration and gives individuals the right to declare a preferred treatment for mental health in the event that they are unable to make that decision at the time.  In essence, it is an “advance directive” for mental health treatment.
