Virginia Advance Directives
This website and corresponding Advance Directive project have grown out of a partnership between two Virginia institutions:
The University of Virginia’s Institute of Law, Psychiatry and Public Policy
Virginia’s Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services
This partnership is supported by a number of organizations and agencies around the Commonwealth. These collaborators include:
As You Wish - Advance Care Planning
disAbility Law Center of Virginia
Mental Health America of Virginia
National Alliance on Mental Illness Virginia
Virginia Association of Community Services Boards
Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association
Virginia Organization of Consumers Asserting Leadership
The partnership has also greatly benefited from collaboration with Dr. Jeffrey Swanson and his colleagues at the Duke University School of Medicine.
This website is designed and administered by Mental Health America of Virginia and is funded through a grant by the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services.
This website is not intended to provide legal advice. It is merely a guide, and reflects one view of Advance Directives in Virginia. It can be beneficial to consult with an attorney regarding your Advance Directive. However, the intention of Virginia’s law on Advance Directives is to enable and encourage all capable adults to fill out an Advance Directive on their own.
