Loneliness

I would have never thought that loneliness could become an epidemic and be considered more damaging to people’s health than physical inactivity or obesity. Yet, in a recent report from the U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy, that is exactly what is happening. And the details of the reasons why are also astounding. It is not due solely to social media, which is certainly listed as an accelerant, as well as covid.

In fact, the research is showing that this latest epidemic has been years in the making – as far back as the 1970s.

In the 1970s, 45 percent of Americans said they could generally trust other people, according to the surgeon general’s report. Today, less than one third say the same. In addition, the amount of time Americans say they spend alone every day has risen by nearly 30 minutes from 2003 to 2019 and increased another 20 plus minutes in 2020, the first year of the pandemic.

And the amount of time that 15–24 year-olds spend with their friends in person dropped by nearly 70 percent from 2003-2020.

The information just keeps getting more somber as just 16 percent of Americans say they feel attached to their local community.

This is combined with the fact more people are living alone more, marrying less and not having children as often.

So, what do we do?

Locally, I believe we can work to engage one another in various social activities whether that be ones we participate in directly or are spectators such as watching local sporting events, musical concerts or plays.

Certainly, each person must decide what level of involvement is right for them.

 As for me, I will be working to be more intentional about my interactions with my family, as well as those I interact with both at work and in life in general.

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.
