Advance directives have been one of the more promising innovations in recent years to give patients a greater voice in their psychiatric treatment. The author describes the clinical-legal implications of the Hargrave vs. Vermont. Hargrave represents a continuation of the battle over the right of psychiatric patients to refuse treatment that began in the 1970s.
