PATIENT RIGHTS

Tuesday, June 11, 2019

Stepping Stones of Rockford, Inc., 706 North Main Street, Rockford IL at 6:30pm

Speaker: Laurel Spahn

Ms. Spahn represents respondents in involuntary-commitment and involuntary-treatment proceedings at the trial level and has argued mental-health cases in all five districts of the Appellate Court and in the State Supreme Court.

Advance directives – powers of attorney for healthcare and mental-health treatment declarations – are powerful and empowering documents. These documents can make sure individuals get treatment they want and not get treatment they know to be harmful to them, and can help to avoid involuntary mental-health proceedings. Please join an attorney from Illinois’s Legal Advocacy Service, a division of the Illinois Guardianship and Advocacy Commission, for a discussion on voluntary and involuntary mental-health treatment, rights of persons facing these proceedings, and how advance directives can be beneficial in these circumstances.
