About us Healing Companions, Inc., is an Oberlin, Ohio-based nonprofit organization. We work to raise awareness of the benefits of psychiatric service dogs and provide them to qualifying residents of Northeast Ohio who suffer from mental illness. Our program helps individuals who are severely limited in their ability to function live with dignity, productivity, freedom and self-reliance. Our founder, Jane Miller, is a licensed psychotherapist with 20 years of experience working with psychiatric service dogs. In the mid-90s she began training psychiatric service dogs to help her clients suffering from debilitating mental illnesses. After years of observing these amazing animals rebuilding her clients’ lives, she went on to found Healing Companions, Inc. in 2013 to share the benefits of these dogs with more people. We aim to educate the public about the benefits a psychiatric service dog can offer those suffering with mental illness, and inform health professionals about the legal, ethical, and psycho-social impact of these wonderful animals, and how they can be integrated into mental health care.
