A Life Changing Decision

I remember the first time I met Judi Flannery as a new police reporter at the Chronicle-Tribune.

I remember the passion she displayed and the way she knew how to convince you that you were a valuable asset in the war against domestic violence.

I knew as a reporter I needed to separate myself from the day to day victim work, but I also knew by covering the issue I could bring awareness to a subject that 20 plus years ago was not readily discussed.

So, I carefully navigated ethical boundaries and worked to report as often as possible about domestic violence, sexual violence and stalking.

As time went on however I found that reporting about the issue just wasn’t enough, so when the opportunity arose in March 1994, I accepted what has proven to be a life changing decision when I became director of Hands of Hope, formerly Women’s Services.

Twenty years later I continue to believe that I made the right decision. I know there is still much work to be done to eradicate domestic violence, sexual violence and stalking in my community. And I still passionately believe as Judi Flannery once did, that I can make a difference around this crime.

But I also know that I can not do this alone. I know that it will take everyone in this community to take what can be a secretive crime and bring it into the light.

Our goal must be to create a community where domestic violence, sexual violence and stalking are not tolerated.

And, in order to accomplish that lofty goal, I need everyone to take a stand.

I realize not everyone will be called to work intimately in domestic violence prevention or intervention, but I would implore anyone who is reading this post to take a look at your own life and make sure first that you are living a non-violent life with a non-violent attitude and approach. I would ask that you are modeling healthy attitudes and interactions with your family, your friends, your co-workers and even strangers you meet in your day to day living.

And I would ask that everyone EXPECT RESPECT. I would ask that in addition to expecting respect, you GIVE IT, GET IT and LIVE IT so that when my three daughters are adults, they will see a community that embraces healthy, respectful relationships and has zero tolerance for anything violent.

Team of professionals at Radiant Health

Hi there.
We're Radiant Health.

As of January 18, 2023, Grant Blackford Mental Health and Family Services Society, two organizations that merged in April 2022, rebranded under the unified name Radiant Health.

We’re excited for you to meet the new us, and to get a chance to help work together on the new you.

How we help.

When you’re in the middle of it, addiction can feel like a dead-end road. We know for certain that it isn’t. Just like any mental health challenge, addiction is an obstacle on our path. And, with some innovation and hardwork, we can work our way around it. On the other side of that obstacle is a bright future with healthy relationships, purpose-driven life, and a profound joy that’s been missing for all too long.

What do we mean?

Like so many things, mental health is passed down through families. Through behaviors, mirroring, and conditioning, we learn so much of what we know from those closest to us. Oftentimes that’s for the better, sometimes it’s not. At Radiant Health, we’re here to help ensure that your family makes purpose and joy as hereditary as any trait you might pass down to future generations. With a bit of hard word, together, we can make joy run in your family. 

What is Better?

Better ≠ perfect. Better means a path of continuous improvement; of evolution. When we focus on getting 1% better, 1% brighter every single day., we’re able to see the joy in the moment, while feeling the pride that comes with taking the reins over your life and working hard on yourself.  Here at Radiant, to focus on your future, we move towards it one achievable step at a time. 

What is Better Care?

When we talk about “brighter, better care” through our specialized services it boils down to 3 simple ideas. First, better care is safer care. Our facilities and staff are trained and equipped to offer safe, secure facilities during any stay. Second, better care is a respect for dignity. We believe in the dignity of every human being and we treat each person with the same level of respect. Finally, better care is the pursuit of purpose. Our treatment is designed with the firm belief that every person has purpose and, through it, finds joy.

What to Expect?

At Radiant Health you can expect a warmth and cheer that are rare in the mental health space. We believe firmly that the commitment to mental health is a commitment to finding purpose, but also discovering joy in the pursuit of it. Walking through our doors is a simple and transparent process. You’ll begin with an initial consultation with our expert staff, developing a blueprint, and taking that first step towards incremental improvement.
