Understanding Guardianship and Mental Health

Tuesday, March 23rd from 6 - 8 pm

As stated by the Ohio State Bar Association, "A guardian is a person, association or corporation appointed by a probate court to be legally responsible for an incompetent person and/or the person’s property." There are cases in which guardianship can be an important recovery tool for people living with a mental health condition and their loved ones. During this presentation, Honorable David Woessner, Judge of the Wood County Court of Common Pleas, Probate and Juvenile Divisions, will provide information about the guardianship process.
