On Friday March 31, the CBS television series “The Mentalist” ended the episode with a scene with a terminally-ill man choosing to end his life with medication. This scene demonstrates the rational desire people have to control their circumstances at the end of life.

It also shows the dilemmas faced by people who cannot openly speak with their physician about aid in dying.

Compassion & Choices offers information and counseling for people in all 50 states who are interested in achieving a peaceful death. We also offer a wealth of materials to aid individuals in letting their physician and loved ones know their end-of-life wishes.
