As an agency who cares for individuals who may need guardianship, you are in the best position to know when an individual’s cognitive functioning has decreased to the point where they can no longer make their own sound decisions.

MHANI is currently accepting referrals for guardianship.

If you have a client who you have identified as possibly needing a guardian, please call our office at (260) 422-6441 or email to discuss the referral process prior to filling out the referral form. We will help you decide if the client meets criteria for guardianship, or if there are alternatives to guardianship that may be more appropriate.

MHANI will do a face-to-face intake prior to contacting the legal team about guardianship. The turnaround time for a court hearing is typically 8-12 weeks if there is not an emergency need for guardianship.
