What You Need To Know About Psychiatric Advanced Directives (PADs)

A PAD is an advance directive that outlines your preferences for a time when you cannot make mental health decisions or communicate your wishes yourself. It is a legal document, like a living will, that states YOUR wishes, for YOUR treatment.
