Mental Health America of Northeast Indiana (MHANI) has served as guardian of incapacitated individuals since 1988, when the organization accepted a contract to provide guardianship services to individuals moving out of the State Developmental Center and into group and waiver homes in the community.


Our guardians have 25 combined years of experience in the role. They adhere to the National Guardianship Association’s Standards of Practice, as well as uphold rigorous ethical standards and practice person-centered care in order to provide the best care possible for their clients. While not possible for all clients, it is our goal to help as many individuals as possible regain their rights and become capacitated enough to manage their own affairs once again.
