    This panel will examine the nexus between healthcare decision-making and mental health/illness. Speakers will explore how the law can facilitate, undermine, and otherwise shape individuals’ choices with regard to mental healthcare. For example, one of the speakers will examine decision-making capacity as it relates to medical aid in dying. Another will provide a comparative perspective, sharing and critiquing the law in England, Australia, and New Zealand on advance directives for those with serious mental illnesses.
