This article discusses the importance of utilizing powers of attorney for mental health care as an integral part of the estate and incapacity planning process. The so-called graying of America, the increased functionality of individuals with periodic mental illnesses, and the fact that many common "physical" conditions manifest as psychiatric symptoms are all factors that highlight the importance of specifically planning for temporary mental incapacity.
