Since 1962, Oaklawn has provided comprehensive mental health and addiction services for children, adolescents and adults. In that time, we have grown from a small organization in Elkhart to four campuses in Elkhart and St. Joseph counties and nearly 900 employees. Since 2006, Oaklawn has been under the direction of President and CEO Laurie N. Nafziger and Medical Director Daniel Kinsey, M.D. We offer a full range of mental health and addiction services and are continually adapting to meet the needs of our clients and communities. Oaklawn is sponsored by Mennonite Health Services, which is accountable to Mennonite Church USA, Mennonite Brethren and Brethren in Christ churches.
