What is an LPS conservatorship?


An LPS Conservatorship may be established to arrange behavioral health treatment or placement for those who are determined to be gravely disabled. LPS conservatorships are designed for persons who are gravely disabled, due to a chronic and persistent mental illness.

An LPS conservatorship may be of the person only, or of the person and estate. An LPS conservator of the person may arrange for the involuntary placement of his/her conservatee in a state hospital or psychiatric treatment facility.
