Advance Statements

Your chance to say how you want to be treated.

What is an Advance Statement?

The 2003 Mental Health Act states that if you have a mental health condition, you can write an Advance Statement describing how you’d like to be treated if you become unwell and experience difficulty in expressing your views. Doctors and other people providing treatment must respect the points you make in your Advance Statement.
