Black and Blue on the Inside

It can be easy to dismiss abuse when it is not physical. Yet, in the work that I do, I know that emotional and verbal abuse can be far more destructive than the physical hit …

While that may be hard for someone who has never faced domestic violence to understand, if you listen to a survivor, most will say, it was the sabotage of their self-esteem and self-worth that left the deepest scars.

As we focus on mental health in May, I want to encourage each of us to take time to truly look at others around you and how they are living. Is there someone in your life who might be struggling with their significant other, yet, because it hasn’t risen to the level of physical abuse, they aren’t reaching out?

If so, know that Hands of Hope has resources specifically for them. We have a therapist trained in trauma just a phone call away for no cost. We also have a weekly support group called Safe Connections where anyone can come and learn more about living a life free from any form of violence.

I will never forget the woman who told me she wished her abuser would just hit her, so she could show someone a black and blue eye or a broken bone. For her the emotional trauma she was suffering from on a daily basis left her black and blue on the inside and she didn’t know how to get anyone to hear her.

If you or someone you know is struggling with mental health, now is the time to reach out, to let us be that place where you can begin to heal and live a life free of any form of abuse.  Call Hands of Hope, any time, at 765-664-0701.

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.
