Advance Directives in Various Countries
Psychiatric Advance Directives can be a very important and effective tool to combat forced drugging and other forced psychiatric "treatment." PsychRights has at least some information on Psychiatric Advance Directives in the following countries:
There is a good discussion of Advance Directives, by the Australian Mental Health Legal Centre and there are a couple of chapters about Psychiatric Advance Directives in the soon-to-be published book, Alternatives Beyond Psychiatry: "Upholding psychiatric advance directives: 'The rights of a flea,'" by Laura Ziegler and "Advance directives: A step towards self-help" by Miriam Krücke.
