About:

Angela Lyke, PMHNP-BC, has loved working at Good Samaritan ever since she completed the hospital’s Student Nurse Extern program and worked as an inpatient nurse in the LaSalle Behavioral Health Unit. “Mental health is very fascinating to me,” she said. “I am passionate about increasing the awareness within the community about mental health and decreasing the stigma that is associated with it.” She earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Vincennes University and her Master’s Degree in Nursing from the University of Southern Indiana. Growing up within the community, Angela praises Good Samaritan for their support of continuing education and growth, both at a departmental and personal level. Angela, her daughter and their three boxers spend time at home gardening and reading. She also enjoys hiking and traveling whenever she can. “I want my patients to understand that I am passionate about their care and ready to learn everything about them. I hope they can also learn from me,” said Angela. Her health tip for others is to practice everything in moderation and realize that both mental and physical health are equally important.
