Abstract: This paper is based on a research project – ‘Consumer/Survivor Thinking about Advance Directives in Mental Health’ – co-produced by four consumer leaders and a legal academic, which interviewed 11 consumer/survivors about their thinking about advance directives in mental health. All interviewees had previously given the topic serious consideration and the intention was to document consumer/survivor thinking about advance directives. The researchers are currently analysing the interview transcripts; the author of this paper is employed as a research assistant on the project. This paper explores three points: some key historical moments in consumer/survivor thinking about advance directives; three innovative ideas shared by participants in the research project, and concludes with reflections on how the author’s personal lived experience interfaces with this thinking.
