NHSGG&C BSL A-Z: Mental Health - Advanced Statement
An advance statement is a written statement made by you when you are well setting out the care and treatment you would prefer or would dislike, should you become mentally unwell in the future. Anyone treating you for a mental disorder has a duty to find out and take into account your wishes about how you would like to be treated. However, this may be difficult if you become so unwell that your ability to make decisions about your treatment or to make your views clear has become significantly impaired.
