check it again@ BDU... are you talking MH Act England or Oz... there are differences/
There is no automatic Guardianship in England to the best of my knowledge... has to be applied for and only in set circs.
the hospitals will be full of folk of no fixed address with no fixed support person, all getting treatment anyway because the Act takes this into account.
If you do not nominate a Third Party the Gubmint does it for you. Here, they are called The Public Trustee. Its an entire govt department devoted to caring for those who have no options.
I will bet my house on this btw.
