Advance Directives as I have prepared them in the draft I will email to you are documents that allow your Agent/Attorney-in-Fact to obtain medical information about you specific to Mental/Behavioral Health including Addiction (Examples include depression, anxiety, alcohol, or opioids), and sign forms necessary for your care in those areas if you are not able to do so for yourself. They also indicate whether you would like to authorize your Agent to voluntarily* admit you to in-patient treatment for up to 14 days.
The law is named after Ricky Garcia, a suicide survivor who believes he could have been helped sooner if Washington had involuntary commitment. The law designates nine facilities for involuntary commitment.
Ricky’s Law requires Designated Crisis Responders to place people in specific medical facilities if they are at imminent risk or danger to themselves or others or are unable to care for their own basic needs.
INCREASING GRATITUDE COMPASSION AND KINDNESS
Awareness of Possible Need for potentially life saving intervention for drug or alcohol rehab or suicidal depression is important. Children as young as 13 can execute a MHAD. Part of Estate Planning is about increasing gratitude, compassion, and kindness. By thinking about the possibility of being affected by mental/behavioral health issues including addiction people become more sensitive to the struggles of others. That sensitivity and lack of Judgment saves lives.
