Creating a Community of Safety

Last week I was in the chiropractor’s office hoping for some headache relief after a quick crack of the neck.

As I waited my turn in the waiting area, a young woman signed in and sat down.  The woman who entered the facility immediately after her signed in and came to sit across from her in a chair.  She asked the first woman, “Does he get mad like that a lot?  He was really mean towards you.”  The woman responded casually avoiding eye contact by looking at her cell phone, “Yeah, kind of a lot.”  The inquiring woman asked her, “Are you okay?”  And without missing a beat the first woman responded, “Yeah.  I’m fine. He’s just mad because I asked for something.”  As the first woman was called back into the chiropractor’s office, the inquiring woman’s voice followed her saying, “You know the way he is treating you is not okay.  Please be safe.”

And that was it.  A 15 second interaction between strangers.

I admired the woman for taking the initiative to ask about the encounter she had witnessed in the parking lot and to put the victim on notice that the treatment she received was not okay.  I was saddened by the casual acceptance of the victim and also understood she may not be ready or able to confront the abuser.  She may not even fully recognize it as abuse depending upon her life experience.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and Hands of Hope, a division of Family Service Society, Inc. is ready and prepared to assist victims and survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking no matter where they may be in the process of determining what is best for themselves.  Our team of well-trained advocates are available 24/7 to respond to calls for assistance whether it’s safety planning, working on relationship skills, attending court hearings, assisting with housing, helping with getting personal documents together such as a driver’s license, social security card and birth certificate.  We host groups for survivors and provide individual therapy. All this and more is FREE to victims and survivors.

As community members, it’s our responsibility to know the 24 hour help line number—765-664-0701—and share it with those we may meet, like the woman who was berated by her partner in the parking lot.  If you’d like, stop by Family Service Society and pick up a few help line cards to keep in your purse or wallet—hand them out when it seems safe and appropriate. 

We are responsible for creating a community of safety, and that starts at home by paying attention to what is happening around us, being active observers, and providing safe, compassionate intervention.

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.
