What is MySigns?

Who can create an account?

To create a MySigns account you must be a 'person responsible' for someone with intellectual disability.

​​​​​​​The 'person responsible' has the authority to make decisions about medical treatment on behalf of a person who lacks capacity to make decisions themselves.

Invite others to contribute

Once you've set up an account, you can invite others to contribute and monitor the profile of the person you are supporting.

You can invite:


For example, GPs, mental health or allied health professionals, etc


For example, professional carers, family members or friends
