Love is in the Air

Love Is In the Air – or so it seems.

February is often referred to as the month of love – specifically Feb. 14.

This month, in addition to anything else you bought for your special Valentine, I would ask that everyone do something just for yourself – whether or not you are in a relationship.

Take time to truly evaluate yourself and assess if you are a healthy person with healthy boundaries and respect. Do you truly love yourself? Are you proud of whom you are in a non-boastful way?

Then, if you are in a relationship, once you have assessed yourself, then ask yourself how you interact with your significant other.

Do you show patience, love, kindness and compassion? And does your partner have those attributes?

When I spoke recently at a local Indiana Wesleyan University class, one of the students asked for ways to talk about concerns she had with a friend’s unhealthy relationship.

The adjunct professor suggested that the student discuss 1 Corinthians 13 verses 4-7 with the student’s friend, encouraging the friend to replace her abusive boyfriend’s name where the word LOVE is referenced.

For instance, verses 4-7 state: “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Now, granted, no one is perfect, but if the person who is in a relationship can’t honestly state that their partner is not usually patient, kind, does not envy, boast, dishonor others or is self-seeking, chances are that person is abusive!

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.
