Community Events

Thank you to the Marshall County Blueberry Festival Committee for allowing us to participate in the 2023 Blueberry Festival Parade. Mental Health Matters was our theme, and we couldn’t be prouder of the employees and volunteers that came out to spread the word.

LaShawn put together a group of volunteers to help with the Habitat for Humanity house build for her Service Excellence Level 6 project. This project and Michiana staff volunteers has made a huge community impact, and with that being said Michiana was recognized and awarded with the “Large Business of the Year for 2022” from the Plymouth Chamber of Commerce.

Michiana Behavioral Health donated back to Rock’in Healthy who is doing “Shake It Forward”, by providing healthy shakes to our front line healthcare workers in our Plymouth Community.
