Advance Directive Toolkit
Advance Directives give people more control over their health care decisions when they are unable to make or communicate their decisions. They are valuable tools that can help anyone plan for unexpected accidents and events that could leave them unable to make of communicate informed decisions. They are also consistent with the recovery initiative that Connecticut's Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services implemented in 2001. That initiative emphasizes that persons with mental health conditions must direct their own recovery and manage their conditions as part of their lives, rather than let the conditions define their lives. They are all about CHOICE.
