LB247, passed in 2020, establishes the Advanced Mental Health Directives Act to address illness-induced treatment reluctance.  An Advance Mental Health Care Directive allows an individual to provide preferences and other meaningful instructions for mental health care/treatment. If an individual chooses to have an Advance Mental Health Care Directive, it allows the opportunity to outline instructions for mental health treatment when a person is in crisis or loses capacity to make their own mental health care decisions.
