ARP 179 When Someone Calls 911 on Your Anxiety Attack
I am not being metaphorical. What are your rights when a person, relative or police officer decides that you need to visit your local mental health hospital? For most of us with mild symptoms chances are this is a very small possibility. But it can happen. It did to one woman. For those of us with extreme symptoms or have family members that don't understand our symptoms then it could be a problem. The purpose of this episode is to help you consider how you want to handle this situation. If you need support contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255, the Trevor Project at 1-866-488-7386 or text “START” to 741-741.

There is a link on that page about a psychiatric National Resource Center for Psychiatric Advanced Directive.  This is a document you fill out and can be used to explain what you want done when there is a mental health emergency or problem. I would suggest you check out the FAQ page to get a better understanding of the PAD process.
