Definition of Mental Incompetence
An individual is defined as mentally incompetent if he is manifestly
psychotic or otherwise of unsound mind, either consistently or
sporadically, by reason of mental defect, among which are retardation,
schizophrenia or other acute hallucinatory and delusory defects of
mind, certain types of epilepsy and other seizure disorders which
render the individual coordinated and mobile but of unsound mind,
bipolar disorder which results in sporadic psychosis (but not simply
mild or moderate bipolar disorder), and other disorders which
consistently or sporadically render the individual starkly incapable
of maintaining awareness of and responsibility for his actions.
