Representative Kraft-Tharp and Representative Landgraf, bill sponsors, presented House Bill 19-1041 to the committee.  The bill allows an adult to establish a behavioral health order for scope of treatment (behavioral health orders) that communicates his or her behavioral health history, decisions, and preferences in the event that he or she later lacks decisional capacity to provide informed consent to, withdrawal from, or refuse behavioral health treatment.  The bill aligns the new process for behavioral health orders with current advance medical orders for scope of treatment.
