  • Services


   Legal protection of all people with serious mental disorders who have been designated by the court, searching out and managing the resources necessary for the user of this service to reach the highest level of independence and social integration, as well as defending their interests.

Guardianship is a valuable tool used to provide legal protection to persons with serious mental disorders. Guardians are appointed by a court of justice so that they defend their wards' interests and obtain and manage the necessary resources to make sure that wards enjoy the highest level of independence and social integration.

Development of the guardianship service requires the judge to appoint FUNDACIN MANANTIAL as LEGAL PROTECTOR, PROVISIONAL ADMINISTRATOR, GUARDIAN, CARER and to adopt any other measures in favour of persons with mental disorders.

The guardianship department is composed of a multidisciplinary team made up of economists, lawyers, administrators, social workers, social educators and social integration specialists, who are made available to the wards whose protection has been legally entrusted to us.


Guardianship covers the following areas:

  • Legal assistance

    • Acceptance of guardianships and tutorships entrusted to the Fundacin by a court of law; Legal Protection, Provisional Administration of the ward's property, provided that they are afflicted with a mental disorder.
    • Defence of the ward's interests in any civil, criminal, administrative or employment-related procedures that may arise.
    • Initiation of legal action in defence of the ward's personal and financial interests.
