The prevalence of mental conditions such as depression has increased sharply in recent years. Many people suffering from a mental condition often find it difficult, quite apart from the actual illness, to defend their own interests when dealing with such parties as official authorities, doctors, banks, creditors and so on, as their diminished capabilities leave them no longer able to manage some or all of their affairs. It is then that they might find that they need the professional support of a legal guardian.
