An Advanced Directive for Psychiatric Care, sometimes called a “PAD,” is a document that states your wishes for your psychiatric care in the event that you become incapable of making or communicating treatment decisions. It is like a Power of Attorney, but specific to psychiatric care. In the PAD, you can describe your preferences for treatment or who you choose to be your “agent,” the person in charge of your psychiatric decision-making.
