Results are reported from a project that involved design, production, and feasibility testing of the use of a multimedia computer program to : 1) educate MH consumers about psychiatric advance directives (ADs), and 2) assist them in creating ADs.
The feasibility results, based on a random sample of 60 adults meeting criteria for having a serious and persistent mental illness, were positive.
Sixty-five percent of the sample were able to complete their ADs.
Educational level, presence of a learning disability, and minority-group membership, but not diagnosis, were related to completion rates.
The results dispel several popular myths about psychiatric ADs.
