My Rights, My Decisions is a program that aims to educate and support the empowerment of mental health consumers with respect to the Mental Health Act 2015 (ACT).

To date, we have created a single My Rights, My Decisions Form Kit, which contains the forms for Nominated Person, Advance Agreement and Advance Consent Direction.

These forms support consumers to express their views about their own mental health treatment, care and support, while they have decision-making capacity.

These views will then be taken into account by their treating team if they have reduced decision-making capacity in the future. The forms are a powerful way for mental health consumers to have their voices heard and we encourage all consumers to put them in place.

The My Rights, My Decisions Form Kit is available for download below.
