Declaration of preference or instructions.
(1) An adult of sound mind may make a declaration of preferences or
instructions regarding mental health treatment. The preferences or
instructions may include consent to or refusal of mental health treatment.
(2) A declaration for mental health treatment may be invoked within 3
years of its execution unless it is revoked. The authority of a named
attorney-in-fact and any alternative attorney-in-fact named in the declaration
continues in effect as long as the declaration appointing the attorney-in-fact
is in effect or until the attorney-in-fact has withdrawn. If a declaration for
mental health treatment has been invoked and is in effect at the expiration of
3 years after its execution, the declaration remains effective until the
principal is no longer incapable.
