Be Excellent

I’ve been privileged to raise two children to adulthood. While I have experienced all the feelings of joy and frustration while raising my kids, I have not taken for granted the amazing opportunity to observe …

My oldest daughter, Caroline, is 27 and has set her sights on law school.  Each day she is studying and getting incrementally better at mastering the LSAT—an exam she did well on the first time she took it and knows that if she does just a bit better, financial support for her education will come more easily.  She does not miss a day of studying and balances this with her full-time job at a busy law firm in Indianapolis supporting multiple attorneys in their practice.

Caroline balances this pursuit of her dream by spending time with her friends and staying engaged with issues important to her.  She is training for her first half marathon, she walks the dogs daily, and she continues to gain strength in her gym workouts throughout the week.  She has developed the habit of excellence over a period of time that she might consider trial and error and it’s paying off.

My son, Will, is about to turn 24 years old.  After his acute lymphoblastic leukemia diagnosis and serious battle to live starting at age 21, I did not know if I would see this day.  Will exemplifies excellence.  When Will was hospitalized, he constantly heard comments about his willingness to ride the Peloton bike even if he could only do it a few minutes.  He walked laps after each meal.  He practiced gratitude.  He kept a schedule.  Even when things were dire, he used his daily practice to provide structure and a sense of accomplish—all with the mindset of healing.

These days I watch Will wake at approximately the same time each day, down a first breakfast of nutbutter toast, a large honeycrisp apple, a handful of medications and supplements and 32 oz. of water.  Then he does a strength and flexibility workout.  He returns from his workout for a second breakfast and another 32 oz. of water.  He completes his morning routine of reading, writing, studying and meditating.  Lunch.  More activities.  Every day is planned to fit in all the things he needs to do and the things he wants to do—time with friends, gaming, long boarding.

Every day these two young adults commit to and complete the incremental steps that move them closer to realizing their dreams, even if they don’t feel like it.  Excellence is their habit.

I’ve learned a lot from watching them.  I admire their strength and tenacity.  I bang my head against the wall in solidarity as they run into obstacles that can overwhelm them.  I want to be more like them.

What incremental, baby step, do each of us need to take today to ensure we are moving closer to making our dreams come true?  What small step do you need to take to become excellent at a new skill?  What action, today, and repeated every day going forward, creates the ultimate excellent result?

As Steve Jobs said, “We don’t get a chance to do that many things.  And every one should be really excellent.  Because THIS is OUR life.”

Be excellent.

Hi there.
We're Radiant Health.

On January 19th, 2023 Grant Blackford Mental Health, Inc. and Family Service Society, Inc. merged to create a bigger, better, and brighter mental health organization called 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.
