Finding Compassion

Recently our communities were shocked by the headlines regarding a missing 10 year old girl. I remember learning the search was on and immediately thinking to myself, “I hope this ends well.” Deep down, I …

I’ve learned so many things serving as the leader of Family Service Society. One of those things is that there is no end to the ways in which humans can torture and be cruel to one another.  The more important thing I have learned is the ways in which it is easy for me to judge individuals on their worst action.  This is a trait I am not proud of and where FSSI has taught me a new way of looking at things.  While my brain may initially submit to the amygdala hi-jack, the immediate and more important thought that follows is one of compassion—what happened to this person that contributed to them behaving in this way. I had this same reaction when I learned of the circumstances surrounding Skylea’s death.

You see, whether we like it or not, we are what we experience.  For those who have experienced incredible instability and extremes in behaviors from those around us, our foundational framework for a healthy life is eroded.  It’s as if our life house was built on an eroding cliff and the rains keep coming.  This is true for all of us whether we grew up in poverty or privilege.

As a community we have a responsibility to protect those who cannot protect themselves and for those who do commit the worst of actions, like killing a young girl, we have to both bring a spirit of justice and compassion.  Justice must be served and compassion must be found for the individual who committed the offense so that they may get the help they need to change their future experience.

None of us are only our worst action and yet that is often how we are judged. Instead, we must find a way to look upon one another as the rounded humanity of people—the good and the bad.  And for ourselves, how do we collect and adopt all the goodness of others and avoid the vices.

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.
