UHS-owned Michiana Behavioral Health looked at by Indiana Civil Rights Commission, Department of Child Services

Posted on April 4, 2013


A local mental health facility is under the microscope following a string of protests from past employees.
March 14, a group of former employees picketed near Michiana Behavioral Health located on Oak Road in Plymouth. These individuals held signs claiming that the facility is understaffed, causing an unsafe work environment.
The self-proclaimed “whistle blower” among the protesting group, Dominique Smith, told a Pilot News reporter that she had witnessed incidents of sexual misconduct and physical abuse at the facility when she was working there between November 2010 and April 2012. On a seemingly separate matter, Smith, who said she resigned from her position at MBH, believes that she was discriminated against while she worked at the facility and her health issues were ignored by administration. She also said she was targeted for mistreatment by her supervisors.
