Oaklawn in Goshen also a place for the Amish to seek help
December 3, 2018
GOSHEN, IN — Dale Raber sees a range of mental health needs as a therapist at Oaklawn Psychiatric Center, but his clients all have one thing in common: They’re all Amish.
Raber, who has been with Oaklawn since 2003, conducts individual and group therapy sessions in Pennsylvania Dutch. Glen Miller, who has the title of Amish advocate, is often on the phone speaking that dialect with clients and their families. Not all the care for Amish at Oaklawn happens in the dialect, but it’s one way some who work there can build bridges.
